Rosignol is the end of the line on the East Coast of Demerara in Guyana, for the very first trains in all of South America. They were established in 1848 and ran to ruin by a government with neither foresight nor hindsight by 1971, when they, injudiciously, were scrapped. The two women represent the main ethnicities of working people whose very livelihood depended on it, and were cast into a yet greater difficult life situation by their removal from service.
