Entry Description: The current Hershey train is a seventy-year-old electrically powered train that looks, acts and feels its age. Originally the rail line was constructed in 1921 by US chocolate baron, Milton S. Hershey as a means of transportation for labourers between Havana and the Hershey Chocolate factory in Mantanzas. Today the Hershey train serves as a vital commuter service for people who live near the tracks. Every ten minutes or so the train stops at a station to pick up a handful of passengers transporting a variety of items from one stop to another.
