Status of Jamaican Railway Corporation

Discussion in 'Getting Started' started by Gregg Mahlkov, Feb 4, 2001.

  1. Some time ago, someone inquired on another venue as to the status of the Jamaican Railway Corp. which used to operate the common carrier freight and passenger railway in Jamaica. I rode its "Governor's Coach" (a British built equivalent of an RDC) out of Montego Bay 25 years ago. Tried a Jamaican BB and the Jamaican CofC, but never got an answer. I had heard that the Canadians or Indians were proposing to reopen the railway.
    Does ANYBODY know what's going on with the Railroad in Jamaica???
