Been there, done that, and like most, don't recommend it. Expensive, crowded, bumpy, and you don't get to see alot or stop where you want. It was not built with passengers in mind or as a sightseeing train. It was built to transport sugarcane.

It's so much better and easier to just rent a taxi. Plus, you get to see more, see what you want to see, stop where you want to stop, take pictures, and do alot more.

We took the Train in St Kitts in February and really enjoyed it! Well worth the money if you ask me!

We were in St.Kitts in January of last year .My wife wanted to do the railway excursion but I read so many negative reviews that we did not do it.Several people on our cruise did the railway and liked it . We are going back to St.Kitts later this year and I have been reading reviews on line and they are mixed,
