* = recommended train
? = Guesstimated time. All trains, even overnight ones, only have seats. There are no couchettes or sleeping-cars in Cuba.
A:  Tren Frances (the French Train). Since 2009 it’s been running every third day, but you’ll have to check  which days it runs locally, by asking at the information office . It offers two classes of seating, basic leatherette ‘Primera’ and quite luxurious  ‘Primera Especial’.
B:  Runs every third day, on a day when the Tren Frances isn’t running.  So together trains 1/2 & 3/4 provide a  Havana – Santiago service on 2 out of every 3 days. However, train  3 & 4 has much  more basic passenger cars than the Tren Frances.  Primera class  seats only.
C: Runs every third day. Primera class seats only. Ask at the station to find which days it runs.
D:  Runs every second day. Primera class seats only.  Ask at the station to find which days it runs.
E: Not sure when this runs – probably every 2-3  days. Primera class seats only.
