Answer: neither shipwreck nor island...
Apparently, it's a sunken train locomotive on Harbour Island, Bahamas !!
"A variety of shipwrecks like along a barrier reef called The Devil's Backbone. Perhaps the most unusual shipwreck is the remains of a steam locomotive, lying in 15 feet of water in the middle of The Devil's Backbone. The train was the main cargo of a wooden barge, which sank during a storm in 1865, bound for Havana, Cuba."
"Part of a Union train captured by the Confederacy and sold to a Cuban sugar plantation which plunged from a barge in 1865 is what you will find in just 20 feet of water. View the few remains of this locomotive which struck the Devil's Backbone on its way to Havana."
