    I've just been cycling in Cuba - that's me on the right with a mate, Nigel. There is a place in Cuba called Australia - it's a now defunct sugar mill. This is (I think) a Baldwin of some description - I'm sure some of your correspondents will fill in the details. I'll send you some more shots soon. I'm off to the UK for a couple of months on Saturday - more shots of UK steam will be coming your way!!

The Train at the End of the World

On our circumnavigation of South America, we called in at the port of Ushuaia, and went for a trip on the so-called Train at the End of the World, a narrow guage steam-hauled tourist railway that started life as a convict-built railway to fetch wood for the smelters in Ushuaia. Here are some photos from that day.
