Remarks & Notes 
Hawaii’s railroading beginnings are often credited to the Island of Kauai, whose first opened in 1881 on three miles of narrow-gauge track at the Kilauea Plantation to haul sugar cane. By 1915 the island boasted over 200 miles of track, all of which served several sugar plantations on the island, although by the 1950s most of the island’s railroads were abandoned. Today, Kauai once again has an operating railroad, the 2.5-mile Kauai Plantation Railway, a tourist line that operates seven days a week.

You think there would be no trains in Paradise? Think again. (Hawaii. Not Pennsylvania.)
