La Mambisa

La Mambisa 

Baldwin steam locomotive #1180 (original no.1, construction no. 6456) is called "La Mambisa". A "mambisa" is a female Cuban independence soldier who fought in the "Ten Years' War" against Spain from 1868 to 1878.

The locomotive was and is the oldest at the sugar mill Rafael Freyre and was built in 1882 by Baldwin (wheels 0-6-0, 30"). It is still in operation after 138 years. "Santa Lucia" is the prerevolutionary name of the sugar mill, which closed in 2002.
