According to Jose Rodriguez, director of this institution, we are talking about one of the largest construction and culturally relevant programs, only compared to Batey Jaronu, a National Monument.
The work, which is expected to be ready on February 24, is a tribute to the railroad workers and to the history of this means of transportation, which officially arrived in Camagüey in 1846.
The Railway Museum commemorates the history of the train in the region with its first route from Puerto Principe to Nuevitas, north of the central-eastern Cuban city.
“It is an extremely costly project due to its complexity, with the placement of a fleet of locomotives dating back to the 19th century,” Rodriguez added.
Visitors will be able to enjoy a virtual tour, led by experts, of the different stations of a terminal decorated with allegories and the design of previous eras.
“The tour will help visitors to appreciate how the railroad had an impact on the design of the city and its events, on the culture of the different neighborhoods,” Rodriguez told Prensa Latina.
