When we heard the Abuja-Kaduna rail was completed, we didn’t expect too much. However, these pictures shared by Twitter user, @Jag_bros show just how amazing the coaches are.

On June 2, transport minister, Rotimi Amaechi, announced the rail was open for test-run.

The best part is passengers get to ride the trains for free until President Buhari inaugurates the project in July.

However, Nigerians won’t have to pay through their noses to ride in these coaches because Rotimi Amaechi stated that the fares will be subsidised.

Now, people can travel between Abuja and Kaduna in the coolest coaches we’ve ever seen.

We can’t wait to see more rails like this across the country and hope they are all properly maintained.
