South Africa sells two trains to Cameroon Railways at the cost of 3 billion FCFA

The national public company Cameroon Railways (Camrail), has just received two new trains with a traction capacity of 1,500 tonnes of merchandise each. The trains, which cost Camrail 3 billion FCFA, were built by the South African company Grindrod. Grindrod is listed on the Johannesbourg Stock Exchange (JSE).

According to Camrail, the two trains “are a part of a first batch of eight new trains expected for this year.” The railway company’s release indicates that “two other trains are expected in May at the Port of Douala and four more will be here by the end of the year.”

For the two new acquisitions, Camrail chose the South African company Grindrod instead of its usual partner, the Chinese company Csr Nanjing Pulszen which has had, for a few years now, the contract to supply trains, passenger coaches and merchandise platforms to Camrail.
