Visiting Cuba for first time in October 2009 and will be based in Varadero, would like to visit an old sugar plantation factory and get a ride on a steam train, can anyone help with any up to date information ?

Look for the Hershey (yes, as in Hershey chocolate) train. I think it runs somewhere between Havana and Varadero. The train used to carry Hershey’s sugar.
