From 1900 the U.S.-owned Cuba Company, and, from 1902, its subsidiary, the Cuba Railroad Company, acquired most of the lines in the center and east of the island, building the much-needed line from Havana to Santiago. The driving force was Willian van Horne, a Canadian-American with wide involvement in U.S. and Canadian railway development, including the Canadian Pacific. James J. Hill, Henry Flagler and the Whitney’s were among his collaborators. The Cuba Co. owned 60% of the Railway Co.

In 1960 all railways were nationalised by the new Castro Government. Shows a locomotive, and farmers at work.
