standard gauge

Most Cuban sugar mills had standard gauge rail systems, often directly connected to the FCC main line or even using the main line to access remote fields. The locos were a mixed bunch of purpose built or former main line machines, usually classic American engines built between 1900 and 1920 by one of the major US builders.

Mills in hillier areas tended to use narrow gauge railways to access the cane fields. Many lines were 2'6" gauge but there were several other gauges in use as well. Like the standard gauge mills, most narrow gauge lines used locos of classic American design built by the major US builders during the first two decades of the 20th Century.
