Railways of Jamaica: Linstead to New Works
Beyond this, very little is known about it. There is no trace of it on satellite images (see Linstead to New Works at WikiMapia) suggesting it was closed significantly earlier than Jamaica's other lines.

Stations and Halts
There must have been at least 2 stations on the line:
There were no tunnels on the line.
There were probably no significant bridges on the line as its junction with the Spanish Town to Ewarton line would have been north of the Rio Magno Gully Bridge (~75m) and there are no other significant water courses between Linstead and New Works.
