So, let’s talk about railroads in Guyana…
A sawmill business bought by the British to set up in 1894 a well-functioning transportation system.
The railroad provided access through Guyana’s primeval forest to the upper Essequibo’s Goldfield.
Being that Guyana was the only country that provided and exported a prized hardwood at the time, this functioning railroad was a prized possession
The railroad tracks ran south along the Demera River until it reached that area near the current Mackenzie bridge.
Near 1900, here comes a spanking new railroad linking the two rivers. We all know that Guyana is a land surrounded by many waters though…In fact, its country is below sea level which is preoccupying with somebody. The railroads created businesses and were used to move people and pieces of equipment around from one point to the other.
It brought hope for a brighter future. All sorts of jobs were created for the future of the people. Life improved for many.
Sadly, for the last 40 years, Guyana has regressed into a total disaster causing the country to fail its people over and over again.
In spite of it all, Guyana has moved into a different era. Natural Resources are back into the flow.
The minds of the ancestors are connected to make futuristic decision to uphold.
Railroad opportunists, take advantage of this break…Let the Oil flow…..
