Re: Tela Railroad Company (Honduras) steam locomotives

Hi Kaixo,
Interesting question on the locomotives. The UFCHS society's officers, Marcelo Busteli and Ian ? can help you. But I don't know if they are still interested in the society, having moved on to teaching jobs. You'll need to check with them directly.
I may have ridden on a train pulled by those locos. As a kid I visited Honduras in 1962 & 1966 and in the 1970s, did a lot of traveling by bus, rail, plane, you name it. Loved wandering around that country.
A historian in San Pedro might also know this info. Are you writing a book?
