  This is only one part of the recovery of the railway in Cuba. A 
January 30, 2008 article in Granma reported the information of the Cuban 
transport minister about the purchase of 100 locomotives from China 
(those 40 mentioned are part of that), and the purchase of 550 freight 
wagons from Iran plus 200 passenger railway cars: 

  "Jorge Luis Sierra Cruz, miembro del Buró Político del Partido y 
ministro del Transporte, informó de la compra de 100 locomotoras a China 
y la adquisición en Irán de 550 vagones de carga y 200 coches de 
pasajeros de máximo confort, que unirán la Ciudad de La Habana con el 
oriente de la Isla."
