For those complaining that the trains are not enough, especially for the Abuja-Kaduna route, we heard cries, the trains are coming. The 1st batch of new trains built for us by CRRC- 2 motored cars and 4 Locomotives. I have taken delivery & they would soon be in Nigeria. Work is ongoing on the 2nd batch of trains.
