GUYANA: Travel To Buxton By Train!

GUYANA:
Travel To Buxton By Train-Childhood Memories:

Do you remember your childhood days in British Guiana when you traveled by train from Georgetown to any of the villages along the northern shoreline?

I have, and it was a Sunday School Outing to Buxton.

My Mom prepared a lunch basket with the usual curried chicken and rice, and Roti. We boarded the train at the Kingston Railway Depot, along with our Sunday school teachers and other children, for that exciting trip to Buxton.

I recall quite vividly how the fruit sellers came to the coach to sell their fruits whenever we stopped, and how exciting it was to see the trees move, as we travel along the line en route to Buxton.

All the way singing our Sunday School songs.

We stayed all day in Buxton, until that evening, then returned to Georgetown, tired but happy.
