Railways contribute to social enthusiasm in addition to market competitiveness by conveying millions of consumers as well as personnel to urban places and villages around the world. All over the world countries are recognizing the important role that railways contribute to their economy. In the 1950s, Ghana’s railway transport was considered to be one of the best on the continent of Africa. The railway was a major transport connecting to the major cities of the country. Railway transport was very efficient, reliable, affordable and safe. The most important aspect of it was how it refurbished the local economy of traders and the conveyance of agricultural products from the production source to the market centers. This scholarly, therefore, examined the politics of railway transportation and development in Ghana. Particularly, its emphasis is on the impact of the railway transport on the people of Nsawam and Akim Achiase railway stations. The study looked at the role of the state in transport provision and the justification for the state involvement in transport issues. The research moreover underlines the political interference regarding the revamping of the railway sector in Ghana.
