Officials looked at concrete plans of the Lebanese railway system Friday, as the transport minister was updated on the status of studies for the Beirut-Tripoli- Abboudieh track.Since then, many of Lebanon's train tracks have been built over and train cars and engines have been abandoned to rust.The World Bank approved a $295 million package last March that would include the purchase of 120 buses to service 40 kilometers of dedicated Bus Rapid Transit lanes from northern districts to the heart of Beirut.
