The sugar cane train in West Maui is scheduled to make its last call for passengers today as the company ends operation after 45 years.

The Lahaina Kāʻanapali Railroad was created in 1969 and has operated service from Lahaina to Puʻukoliʻi just north of Kāʻanapali daily, serving millions of passengers over the years.

The last round trip will depart from Puʻukoliʻi at 1:45 p.m, and the last one-way Lahaina departure takes place at 2:30 this afternoon.

    How will sugar be transported now? I hope they’ve solved this one

    • transportation for sugar

      Maybe she can catch the bus or a taxi.

    I remember when my son got busted with his kolohe buddies for jumping on the caboose as it slowed down around a curve…

    • Mikey

      That’s a good one. Your son reminds me of me when I was that age.

    Useless anyways. Who wants to see the view of people’s back yards with all their trash.

    • no sugar loss job

      It was good when the sugar plantation was still in operation it’s just another example of what happens after sugar is gone the businesses and jobs goes worn it. But I give the sugar train a lot of credit for surviving this long after the lahaina pioneer mill closed their doors.

      • Bradah Ry

        Yes true.

      • Maui_Mike

        You are right, it was a good run considering the situation.


    Too bad, tree-hugging whale groupies got their way in convincing the locals that it might kill the whales… dang missionaries!
