Kauai Plantation Railway
Now Hiring, Train Engineer
Come work at the beautiful 105 acre Kilohana Plantation.
The Kauai Plantation Railway recreates the days when diesel powered narrow gauge Locomotives moved the harvested cane from the fields to the mill, and raw sugar from the mill to the wharf for shipment. Today we are running two 1948 25 Ton, General Electric, Diesel Electric Locomotives. The same type used in the sugarcane fields.
Climb aboard our 40-minute conductor-narrated tour of the 105 acre Kilohana Plantation. Relax in our floor to ceiling mahogany wood cars while you are entertained and educated by our knowable conductors. The 2.5-mile rail line passes stands of original island crops like sugarcane and taro the staple of ancient Hawaiians. You will also pass groves of mango, banana, papaya, pineapple, and then on to experimental plantings of longan, cashew, hybrid mango, noni, and atamoya. We also have native and exotic Hardwoods from around the world. Learn about Kauais agriculture, history and legends. Well out into the heart of the plantation you get to disembark to spend some time feeding the pigs, goats, sheep, and our friendly donkey Stiney. Bring the whole family, Its fun for all ages.
