On the front page of the Kaieteur News of March 25 is a photograph of some scrapped locomotives which have been scrapped at Matthews Ridge. The headline stated, ‘An unusual sight.’
However, due to my fondness for tourism, I foresee that this site could be developed and transformed into a Tourism Heritage Park for these locomotives.
I am suggesting that the government along with the Ministry of Tourism and National Trust consider this, before these locomotives are left there to be vandalized and destroyed by scrap iron dealers.
