This Weeks's Photo Send photos to photos@trainnews.org


The 30-inch gauge St Kitts Scenic Railway is part of a former sugar cane railway that circled the island of St. Kitts. Its double-deck cars are about 17 feet high. The first photo is a westbound train crossing a ravine along the north shore of the island. The boots of a worker painting the inside of the girders can be seen dangling from the bridge. The second photo shows the same train a few miles west with a view of 3,792-foot Mount Liamuiga in the background. Both photos taken February 14, 2018.
