even the one plying kaduna to Abuja, you're yet to ride on it, here you're showing your village trait. So, the one that came since 2015 hasn't exceeded your stipulated 6 months?

These jokers are here bragging about 160km/hr trains when China built trains running as fast as 431km/hr as far back as 2004. Nigerian politicians are clowns but I can't blame them, they know their constituents are gullible bonobos whom are easily lured over with free bags of rice and mosquito nets come election day.

Imagine they are not even ashamed to mention 160km/h in this modern time.
I wonder what they think Nigerians are!

It is people like you that deceive politicians and make them think Nigerians are substandard people.

If you don't deserve quality services from the government , I do

And what proof do you have that the trains ain't of good quality... Mind you, I do not trust the government like every other sane person... However, if we agree no one is "guilty until proven otherwise", we shouldn't just jump into conclusion about the quality of the trains. And I am pretty sure its because the party you love ain't the one making these giant strides.

Politics of bitterness, hate, ethnicity, religion etc have always pulled us many steps backward. I shall be one of many to speak out against the government if after the trains arrive, you prove it is of lesser quality than stated.

A batch of trains rolled off the production line of China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation (CRRC) Nanjing Puzhen Co., Ltd., on Sept. 12, and will be shipped to the Port of Lagos in Nigeria a month later, according to reports.

These 10 standard-gauge trains were ordered by Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) in May this year. They have adopted Chinese standards, and will be the fastest trains running in Africa, with a design speed of 160 km/h. Operation speed could be as high as 150 km/h.

Lagos Senator, Senator Gbenga Ashafa was among the Ministerial Delegation that inspected some of the rail coaches expected in Nigeria by the N R C (next quarter), in Nanjing, China on September 12.

Gbenga Ashafa, chairman of the Nigerian Senate Committee on Land Transport, believes that the Chinese trains will definitely improve the railway development of the country. He said Nigeria is a fertile land open to foreign direct investments with a high return rate.

According to the CRRC Nanjing Puzhen, it is the second order placed by the NRC. The first of five trains was ordered in 2015 and delivered in 2016.

CRRC Nanjing Puzhen has finished 10 orders for six African countries so far, including Nigeria, Sudan, Cameron, and Kenya.

Stories that touches the medulla oblongata.
What a joke we are. Why must we be moribund in our thinking and actions. In April 2015, these Chinese tested trains that reach speeds of 603 km/hr. Why are we about doing 150 km/hr and feeling fly about it?

THIS THREAD SYMBOLIZES WHY THIS COUNTRY HAS PROBLEMS. THE PEOPLE'S MINDSET IS PROGRAMMED TO FAILURE. THEY VIRTUALLY USE THEIR OWN MINDS TO CREATE FAILURE.

AS WITHIN, SO WITHOUT. IF ALL YOU SEE IS FAILURE, ALL YOU WILL GET IS FAILURE. THE UNIVERSE WORKS LIKE A MIRROR. IT GIVES YOU BACK WHAT YOU GENERATE FROM YOUR OWN SELF. NIGERIANS NEED TO LEARN THAT LESSON.

THIS IS THE SAME COUNTRY THAT HAD NO FUNCTIONAL RAILWAY SYSTEM JUST 3 YEARS AGO.

TODAY, WITH THE SYSTEM BEING RESUSCITATED AFTER 30 YEARS, THEY ARE ASKING WHERE IS THE BULLET TRAIN?

I MEAN, I'M JUST LOST FOR WORDS FOR THE LEVEL OF UNINTELLIGENCE DISPLAYED BY OUR SO CALLED 'YOUTH', MANY OF THEM OLD ENOUGH TO KNOW BETTER. PITY.

People like you still keep falling to realise that with China, in most cases, standard/quality is directly proportional to the amount of money paid for a product. Find attached photos of made in China speed trains used in China.

I don't think some people know the meaning of 160km/ hr. They probably dont own cars , when u are on 120km above, u know what speed is ? If the bring a train above 180km in naija, I won't enter because we are not yet developed for that speed, that one will just from third mainland enter lagoon.

COMPAQ:
You all should also remember that it's not every country in Europe that has bullet trains.

The Greece, Bulgaria, Romania etc of this world don't have. So if we have trains that run at that speed, e haven't done too bad.

For your info virgin trains pendolino trains between London and Manchester operate at 250kph, so if we do 150kph we ain't that bad.
Re: Africa's Fastest Trains Set To Be Shipped To Nigeria After Being Inspected. PICS by joeisreal(m): 8:43am On Sep 18
This is not the kind of train a country should order in 2016 to be delivered in 2017. If that is the case they should order Mercedes Benz 2000 model for themselves and not 2018. U will never see any of their relatives board this train. Till we see rail transport as an alternative to road transport that sector won't make enough money to support itself and would go comatose again. Here train is a substandard means of transportation while abroad it is a better option than road transport.
