The Sugar Train
The “Island Series” railcars of the St. Kitts Scenic Railway are unlike any other railcars anywhere in the world. They are double-decked, with an upper open–air observation platform that puts you high above the top of the sugar cane and island vegetation for unobstructed 360 degree viewing, and a lower air-conditioned “parlor”.
The carpeted parlor has huge six–foot vaulted windows, and is furnished with cushioned rattan chairs at inlaid tables. There is a service bar, a restroom, and paintings by local artists hang on the walls.
Complimentary drinks (rum punch, frozen daiquiris, soft drinks, fruit juices, and bottled water) are served throughout the trip. Guests are treated to a colorful narration of the history of the Caribbean and St. Kitts by the Tour Director, and are entertained by the three–voice a cappella St. Kitts Railway Choir singing Caribbean folk songs, children's songs, and familiar hymns.
