Ferrocarril del Ingenio San Antonio

Es cierto todo que dicen Ustedes. Quiero anotar que en la pagina web www.nicaraguatransport.com presentamos varios fotos de este tren en sus últimos anos de existencia (1989-2002)(en Espanol, English y Deutsch). Dentro de la propiedad del Ingenio, que tiene su entrada en la antígua parada de trenes "Chichigalpa Las Palmeras" o tambien llamada "Chichigalpa Sur", todavia existen los rieles hasta la antígua estación de trenes del Ingenio San Antonio. Para más paradas y horarios mire una edicion de nuestro antíguo libro itinerario NICARAGUA TRANSPORT. Una pequena historia: En ese tren no hubo boletos. Trabajadores y Estudiantes fueron transportados gratis, extranjeros y otra gente tubo que pagar un pequeno pasaje. Este pasaje fue cobrado por un terrateniente quien permitio pasar la línea férrea sobre su propiedad. Ramona Mercado O.

Vaguely familiar...

The answer was in the palm of my hand. it looks like the label of a Toña!

DAME POSOL CON LECHE if

DAME POSOL CON LECHE if i'm not mistaken that image without the train and people is on the flor de cana ( sugar cane flower) rum label,it's the railroad track going to Ingenio San Antonio in Chichigalpa

Toña...

Call me crazy, but I think it is the Toña label, I just looked at a FDC Siete Años and it had all these big gold medals on it. I like the way you're thinking, though!

flor de cana and tona labels

DAME POSOL CON LECHE well my friend you're right and so am i. If you take a closer look at the main label and the ribbon above the neck you'll find the image. Now i know flor de cana brand has been around from around 1930's whereas tona appeared around 1970's and if i'm not mistaken replaced cerveza Aguila? But my question is did fdc had exclusive rights to that image or not? Also go to wikipedia and read on about fdc "brand symbol" nos vemos!!!!

Right, you are

Right you are, me vi, and welcome to the site, Zapoyol!
