    Of course Imbert could have his own train line from Diego Martin to Port of Spain. This has to be privately financed. After this service is successful the whole country will enjoy the same service every day and the roads have to be tall roads in ordedr to finance the national railways service. The many tall gate on the highways will create many jobs in T&T and people will love to travel by train.
