The Nigerian Railways Corporation (NRC) said it is set to commence Sunday train services from Abuja to Kaduna from March 26, 2017.
The Managing Director, Nigerian Railways Corporation, Engr. Fidet Okhiria confirmed this to our correspondent in a text message yesterday.
Recall at the commencement of train services from Abuja to Kaduna on the standard gauge line, train services ran from Monday to Saturday while Sundays were reserved for servicing of the rolling stock and other facilities.
Already the NRC management has commenced the process including Sunday on its schedule and has informed all relevant departments in the corporation to ensure the service is a success.
On the alternative maintenance programme if the only available locomotive, which does six services to and from Abuja to Kaduna from Monday to Saturday will run on Sundays, Engr. Okhiria said the Corporation will run “two run only two round trips on Saturday and one round trip on Sunday” to allow for the maintenance of the rolling stock and other facilities. ELANZANEWS.M
