Passenger railroad connection between the Cuban cities of Havana and Holguín, paralyzed since 2006, will be restored in the second half of this year as part of a recovery program for the deteriorated sector that has an investment plan of some 3 billion dollars.

The train that will cover the Havana-Holguín stretch will have the capacity to transport 720 passengers to different destinations with 12 cars imported from China, the state newspaper Granma reported this Monday.

Thanks Mike. I guess this could be considered the mainline of Cuba. I didn't actually realise it had been discontinued , I though there was still a dilapidated service going.
