    But there is indeed an operating railroad system in Jamaica ! Not public transportation of freight or passengers, but at least one industrial railroad that carries iron ore... Interrestingly enough it's US mainland style equipped, as one can see SD38-2s hauling iron ore gondolas.. :)

    (indeed the locomotives look like former SD40-2s that lost central hood fan, probably with the loss of their turbochargers)

    Yes, Dom, there is, but is a very significantly reduced network.
