Does any fellow Guyana researcher know what became of the Demerara Railway Company? My great grandfather worked for the railway at least as late as 1909 and perhaps until his death in 1936. Trying to determine if any employment records might survive.

I worked for the Railway (then Transport and Harbours Dept.) from 1964 t0 1969, when I left Guyana, The railroad lines were ripped up by the Guyanese Govt. in the '70s during a dispute with the British Govt, Contact the Transport and Harbour's Dept. for any records that still exist.
