Many wrecks have occurred on the long stretch of shallow coral known as the Devil’s Backbone. The strangest wreck of them all is the “train wreck". It was reportedly part of a Union train, captured by Confederate troops, which had been sold to Cuba. It was being shipped there when the wooden barge transporting it ran aground on the reef during a storm in 1865. Enough of the train still exists to make it an interesting dive site.
