Amaechi revealed that the trains which would soon be in Nigeria were built by a Chinese firm, CRRC.
He said they include two-motored cars and four locomotive trains.
On the distribution of the trains, Amaechi said, they (trains) would service the Abuja-Kaduna and Lagos-Ibadan rail lines.
He said, “Yesterday (Wednesday), I test-ran and took delivery of more trains in China to service the Abuja-Kaduna and Lagos-Ibadan rail lines. For those complaining that the trains are not enough, especially for the Abuja-Kaduna route, we heard your cries, the trains are coming.
“The 1st batch of new trains built for us by CRRC- two motored cars and four Locomotives. I have taken delivery and they would soon be in Nigeria. Work is ongoing on the 2nd batch of trains. The plan is to connect and unite the entire country by rail.”
