Was du so alles findest! Und dann noch die technischen Daten dazu!
Hut ab!
Erstaunlich auch, dass das alles so lange stehen bleibt. Haben die Kubaner kein Hüttenwerk, das Schrott verarbeitet.
Na für Dich ein Glücksfall und auch für uns.

Die Daten konnte man noch entziffern auf der Plakette. Außerdem gibt es Internetseiten, wo man Verzeichnisse der Lokomotiven findet, wo sie noch in Betrieb waren. Es ist interessant und lustig, nach so einer Reise die Details herauszufinden....Danke Dir!

So ein Fund Ist natürlich immer ein Highlight und hat ein ganz besonderes Flair, wenn die location wirklich verlassen und nicht touristisch erschlossen ist.....

Wonderful photos. I loved the shot of it in action. My childhood train journeys were on steam trains. They were magic.

In the last years there were great efforts in Cuba to preserve many of these steam locomotives in museums, you will see some later. Thanks neira-Dan!

A marvellous old locomotive and so good that you were able to find the shot of it operating. Let's hope that something is done to better preserve it.
