Ghana To Receive Modern Trains For Regional And Long-Distance Lines

Ghana’s railway sector is set to receive modern trains to ply its regions and long-distance lines in a bid to revamp its operations.

A Poland platform, Rynek Kolejowy, that was first to report on the news says, Ghana Railways ordered diesel vehicles in Bydgoszcz to operate both regional and long-distance lines. Ultimately, production of the first vehicle was confirmed in September last year.

“The first units of 12 modern trains for Ghana Railways to operate both regional and long-distance lines are on their way from Poland. They’re due to reach Ghana by mid-February.”

According to “RK” information, the first vehicle is already undergoing final tests at the factory in Bydgoszcz (it was photographed there by railway enthusiast Michał Bis); the new diesel multiple unit may be on its way to Africa before the end of this month!,

The framework contract with the Ghanaian Railways covers 12 diesel multiple units, with 10 vehicles being an option for the ordering party. The vehicle is technically similar to the RegioFox vehicles that Bydgoszcz produces for Czech Railways.
