First line opened 1890. The system closed in 1995 and apart from the electrification, which has been dismantled, has been maintained in preparation for transfer to a concessionaire, but this has not materialised. Limited freight operations have resumed, mainly moving bananas for export on the Atlantic part of the network. There are also certain summer-only passenger services and a limited suburban service in San José, Heredia, Cartago and also Alajuela.
