The Hershey Electric Railway – Casablanca, Havana, Cuba

This is the best train I have ever ridden in my life!
We rode this train from Casablanca, Havana, Cuba to the city of Matanzas, approximately 92 kilometers (57 mi) to the East.
The railway is the only surviving electric line in Cuba.
The railway was built by The Hershey Company to transport sugar to the port of Havana.
The original electric interurban cars were bought from the J. G. Brill Company, but these were replaced by cars from the Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya in the 1990s.
The ride costs about $2.40 per person for the whole 3.5 hour ride.
