Built in 1844 to service the hundreds of ships that entered the harbor of St. Thomas, it remained in operation for over one hundred years. When it fell into disrepair around the turn of the century, Henry O. Creque purchased the property at auction. He dedicated his life to operating the facility making it one of the most successful in all the West Indies.

These papers seek to address the question of what should be the future concerns of railway historians through the consideration of a number of themes of significance in railway history. While recognizing the need to revisit old areas of study, these papers seek to indicate new perspectives which might be opened up. They are firmly rooted in the realities of railway history with its strong and continuing appeal for both amateur and professional. Some of the material is as relevant for the privatized railways of the present as the well-loved railways of the past.
