St Kitts Scenic Railway

There are few better and more relaxing ways to see the island of St. Kitts than by one of the double-decked cars of the St. Kitts Scenic Railway. Choose between the splendor of the lower level “parlor” car, complete with air-conditioning, complimentary cocktails, and cushioned rattan chairs and inlaid tables, or the unobstructed 360-degree viewing of the open-air observation deck. Built between 1912 and 1926 to carry sugar cane from outlying plantations to the capital Basseterre, the St. Kitts Scenic is among the last railroads left in the West Indies.

The tour begins at the pier at Port Zante, where passengers board railway transfer buses to join the train. Leaving the station, passengers are soon surrounded by cane fields. As the train ascends the slopes of Mt. Liamuiga, the train passes black sand beaches, ruinous plantation estates, tall steel girder bridges, deep ravines and sweeping vistas of nearby islands.

Practical Info

The St. Kitts Scenic Railway has an alternating schedule, with multiple daily departures during the week from November through April, and a limited schedule between May and October. All ages are welcome, and children will enjoy a chance to wave at the local children who inevitably come to greet the train.
