As the newest visitor attraction at Kilohana Plantation, the Kauai Plantation Railway recreates the days when steam powered narrow gauge trains moved the harvested sugar cane from field to mill, and raw sugar from mill to the wharf for shipment. Although they once ran island wide, the many rail lines of Kauai's sugar plantations were shut down over 40 years ago and today remain only as a fond memory of old time residents. The train runs through the grounds of the Kilohana Plantation and the adjoining 70-acre tropical plantation, the 2.5-mile rail line passes stands of original island crops, sugar cane, taro and on past grooves of mango, banana, papaya, coffee, pineapple and then on to experimental plantings of longan, cashew, hybrid mango, noni, and atamoya. Train riders are told the tale of Kauai's unique place in Hawaii's agricultural history.
