The International Steam Pages

Those were the days...  Osvaldo Sánchez Sugar Mill

This is one of a series of pages showing my pictures of Cuban narrow gauge steam at work in the closing years.

By the time I got to the mill, Osvaldo Sánchez (Mill 210, 2ft 6" gauge), the field lines lines were not much used and trying to photograph steam in the east side of the mill area was likely to attract unwanted attention from the security department - hence 'smash and grab tactics seemed to be the order of the day and I never spent much time here, even before the narrow gauge went out of use altogether.

1309 (Alco 2-8-0) was photographed on the patio on 27th February 1996

In fact my only remotely successful picture here was of 1364 (Baldwin 2-8-0) shunting the patio on 4th March 1997.
