Barbados’ first train pulled out of the St Nicholas Abbey station after the last train blew its whistle 81 years ago.

Approximately 100 tourists and visitors filled the three covered open air cabs earlier this morning on board the Badger, a diesel operated locomotive.

Following the hour-long trip, many of the patrons said they were thrilled with the attraction and hoped to return when the steam engine will be added to the train next month. (RA)
