Future Changes

In October 2023, a volunteer task force of railway engineers from the UK, USA, and Canada will visit Jamaica for a 'Rail Boot Camp', supporting the 'un-mothballing' of the moribund railway by its new management team. The initial focus will be on: (i) making locos and coaches fit to run, (ii) identifying the issues and costs of restoring the 1845 Kingston Terminus and (iii) preparing a three -year funding and restoration plan.
