An 0-6-0 locomotive 'Vicana', manufactured by Andrew Barclay and Sons at the Caledonian works in Kilmarnock, for the Isabel Sugar Factory in Cuba. The works manufactured 8 locomotives for this company altogether but had problems getting the factory to pay them. The Caledonian works were built in 1859. They manufactured steam locomotives until 1962, and later manufactured diesel locomotives. The works did not have a rail connection for the first 40 years of its life, so locomotives had to be brought to the local station on wagons.
