Cruise Dairy: A Scenic Train Ride Through St. Kitts

February 25 we were in St. Kitts and it is another tropical island in the sun. We booked the St. Kitts Scenic Railway Tour excursion. Most of the passengers sat upstairs in the open-air which gives one a magnificent view of the island. The track was created to transport sugar cane out to the fields. That industry is gone now but the narrow rail tracks remain. Enjoy the ride in the photos.
