Nigeria will be getting the delivery of 11 more locomotives for both the Lagos-Ibadan and Abuja-Kaduna railways.
The news of the engines leaving China was made by the Chinese company, CRCC Corporation Ltd, in charge of the rail construction in Nigeria.
Some Nigerian without the full knowledge of locomotives wondered why they look ugly compared to modern-day fancy coaches
The Lagos-Ibadan railway project that is billed to start in September will be doing so powerfully as more locomotives are on their way to Nigeria from China.
The new development was by the Twitter handle of the Chinese company in charge of the project, CRCC Corporation Ltd, on Monday, August 25.
According to the tweet it made, the train engines will also be added to the available ones plying the Abuja-Kaduna railway.
The locomotives left Changzhou Port to Shanghai and could be in Nigeria in days. The post gathered mixed reactions from Nigerians who had many things to say about them.
While some praised the government’s efforts in bringing development to the country, others had things to pick holes about.
According to Wikipedia, “a locomotive or engine is a rail transport vehicle that provides the motive power for a train”.
