WHEN WAL­KING IN­TO THE SURVEYOR PARK (AR­SE­NAL STREET AND BELGIUM AVE­NUE) YOU HAVE TO STOP AND TA­KE A LOOK AT THE CENTENARIAN STEAM LOCOMOTIVES, WHICH DA­TE BACK TO THE 1878-1925 AND HAVE BEEN RESTORED BY HA­VA­NA CITY’S

HISTORIAN OF­FI­CE.

Par­ked near one of the wall frag­ments that can still be seen wit­hin the city’s his­to­ric co­re, right in front of the Cen­tral Train Sta­tion, they are in li­ne with the tra­di­tion shown by the city, in a perfect en­vi­ron­ment for this out­door mu­seum. La Ma­qui­na­ria 1 stands out with a po­pu­lar seal as a Tri­bu­te Mo­nu­ment to Van Van —an or­ches­tra known as The Train of Cu­ban Mu­sic—. It was crea­ted by scul­ptor Les­mer La­rro­za, back in 2016, on car Nº 1816, which was ma­de by Al­co in 1919, in the Uni­ted Sta­tes, and used

at Ha­va­na pro­vin­ce’s To­le­do su­gar mill.
