    Good Move, and please let it be a decent, modern and contemporary rail line and not old smoky locomotives, that people can board for decent trips back and forth as an alternative to road transport, as it obtains in other developed countries. It may help decongest the Lagos-Ibadan heavy road traffic, and its safer than road transport.
