History

The GSRFT network as it is today is the amalgamation of the Trinidad & Tobago Railway company and the Guyanese Transcontinental Railroad. The Trinidad & Tobago Railway company better known as the TTR has built the Bakerloo, Northern, Piccadilly, and parts of the District and Metropolitan routes. The Guyanese Transcontinental Railroad also known as the GTR is responsible for building the Central, Victoria, a majority of the District, and some parts of the Metropolitan route. The Circle and Hammersmith & City were built as pieces of the Metropolitan and District routes. The GTR and TTR were not only the operators of metro services but also operated competing bus services. The Jubilee was proposed by GTR and was in the beginning phases without much support, but soon after starting the project GTR suffered many financial difficulties and eventually went bankrupt. All of GTR's assets fell to the monarchy. TTR tried to takeover the project but with the monarchy refusing to release the project and many financial troubles TTR was soon bought out by the monarchy before the syste shut down all together. Following the consolidation of TTR and GTR under the monarchy the two systems were rebranded as GSRFT and were reworked. By then the two companies had owned not only metro rail but also commuter rail, bus routes, hotels, and other properties. New routes were created, the Hammersmith & City and Circle routes were created. The Jubilee was completed following many trials and tribulations. With more modernization projects on the way we will provide excellent service by the year ∞(And that's a promise!) .
