Havana.- The Cuban railway sector benefits from a broad investment program that aims to incorporate new equipment and improvements in the railroad network.
As a result, seven Russian-made locomotives arrived in the country in December 2018, so 43 such machines are in Cuba at present.
The plan contemplates the acquisition of up to 75 of those machines, with the option of completing that amount by 2021.
In addition, the first experimental prototype of ferrobus, manufactured in Russia using a technique developed by the Union de Ferrocarriles de Cuba (UFC) for transport in rural and remote areas, arrived in the country.
Additionally, 35 railroad silos were received to transport cement, as well as 53 commercial plates, with a loading capacity of 63 tons.
