Is that a sugar cane railway - Hawaii possibly?

It's a former sugar cane line in St.Kitts & Nevis.

I don't know the details. The Seaview Railroad switches out a large car import site at Quonset Point, Rhode Island. The cars, I am guessing, are overflow from that facility, which is actually about two miles to the east. This siding is near Seaview's interchange yard with the Providence and Worcester and the Northeast Corridor.

Last week, my family and I were at Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, VA for their Christmas Town event. This was one of three trains there on their narrow gauge railroad.

There's a CSX mainline north of the park. We caught two westbound empty coal drags. There's also an Anheuser Busch facility with a spur. My son saw a CSX SD parked on the lead but I wasn't quick enough to get a photo.

There's a lot to like in that AEM-7 deadline picture, apart from the subject matter.    There's the contrast between the new cars and the dead locomotives, made more poigniant by what they have in common - red lights and similar body colors.  There's the curve of the line of locomotives, not just horizontally but also vertically.  And there's there's the reflection of the locomotive in the puddle - and the puddle itself emphasizes the deadness of the locomotives.
