African economies will be severly handicapped if they dont improve the railroad systemhno: . I dont get why they are not improving the old colonial railroads by buildiing new ones. We need them to move or people and goods and services around. Many of our people are to poor to buy cars and everything would be more effecient with rail travel then buses and cars. I keep seeing improvements in the road sector but we need to emphasize railroads more. Look at India and how it was helped by the railroad. You can move a large amount of cargo and people cheaply.
