Narrow gauge construction railway in St Lucia

Found this interesting photo while looking for information on railways in the Caribbean.

If you look closely, there's a railway mounted hand crane on the pier end, a set of tracks running between the piles of what appear to be bricks...and there are two portable turnouts leaning against the wall of the building.

Interesting! Inspiration for future models!

A little Gn15 out on the pier and inland to a warehouse, yep.
