Hi Vince/Geoff,
This may interest you both. The Demerara-Berbice Railway, built in then British Guiana (now Guyana), was the first railway system on the South American continent. It was first operated by the Demerara Railway Company, The railway ran for 97.4 kilometres (60.5 mi) along the coast from the capital and main port Georgetown in Demerara to Rossignol in Berbice, whence it was connected by ferry steamer across the Berbice River to New Amsterdam. XX 1 LF had departed in Oct 1965 for Weeton. So Vince useful to fill in the gaps and thanks to Geoff also, however, my interest is in the ferry - M.V. Carr (or was it the Ganji Pheasant?) stopped plying the Georgetown to McKenzie route in 1969 when the new East Bank Demerara road was completed. Did the Ganji Pheasant ever existed? Perhaps only in the humours minds of XX 1 LF?. My crystal ball is becoming very cloudy. Les
