Nigeria's rejuvenating train services

Nigeria's train services have been abandoned for more than 20 years. The economy focused its resources on other sectors of the country neglecting the promising and once admired rail services. Nigeria has constantly been battered for the lack of good roads in the country causing accidents and loss of valuable lives that occur ever so often. There has never been a better time for the government to restore the Nigerian railway services.

I am an avid train-traveller and I love the serenity and safety train travel provides. Watching these videos below gave me a big sense of hope and optimism for Nigeria as this is the well-needed progress required for economic, cultural and infrastructural growth. Even though the services are not perfect yet, this was still a joy to watch.
