The assault on this train is a key piece of history in this country.
A historic train
An important part of the history of the Cuban revolution took place on this train. On December 29, 1958, commander Ernesto Ché Guevara and 18 other revolutionary combat soldiers used a bulldozer and a few homemade incendiary devices and managed to stop this armored train. This was key because, from here, events developed in favor of the revolutionary army and two days later the Cuban revolution triumphed on January 1, 1959. Today you can visit the interior of this interesting train, where you are told all about this historical fact in great detail. The excavator is also exposed, as part of the history of those days.
