It wont be a shock if you have never seen or even heard about the Nigerian Railway Fare Chart, because its often a cliché in modern Nigeria political discourse to dismiss Nigerian Railways as – dead, and to put it mildly, non-existent. Fortunately that’s very far from the truth.
For some time now, the railways have been back, it may not yet be functioning at the level of the London Metro and subway, but it is working.
Just a few days ago, the Nigeria Railway Corporation, announced that the President, will officially commission the new Standard guage railway line on the 26th of July 2016.
The ultra modern Abuja – Kaduna Train Service will officially commence commercial operations and bring to an end the trial run which started some weeks ago.
One of of the major services introduced is the Student Excursion scheme which is geared at helping schools to lower the cost of sending students on excursion.
