SUGAR CANE TRAIN

The Lahaina, Kaanapali & Pacific Railroad

Railroads traveled through the history of Hawaii for more than 100 years, hauling sugar cane to the mills, and transporting workers between their homes and the canefields. Steam locomotives became a picturesque part of the Hawaiian landscape, sounding their haunting whistles as they rounded a mountain curve, or plowed along narrow-guage track between fields of sugar cane and plantation villages. Today, Hawaii's railroads have disappeared almost entirely. The Lahaina Kaanapali & Pacific Railroad - better known as the "Sugar Cane Train" - transports visitors from the Maui of yesteryear to the beauty and charm of Maui today.
