An Editorial from the Jamaica Observer; October 2, 2017

Readers will recall that the JRC was once a cornerstone of Jamaica’s transportation system. Trains travelled daily carrying passengers and cargo, linking Kingston to the north-eastern town of Port Antonio through the hills of St Catherine and St Mary, and for several miles along the magnificent north eastern coastline.
