Notes on the Geography of Kenya: Colonial Nairobi : Photo 7

world pictures Kenya: Colonial Nairobi

After World War I, when the Germans lost Tanganyika to the British, the railways of both Kenya and Tanganyika were reorganized as the East African Railways, which explains the letters on this locomotive at the museum. The EAR, which also operated in Uganda, survived longer than British rule but came to an end in 1977. Since then, the Kenya part of the system has been simply Kenya Railways. Management has been in various hands, including those of the Rift Valley Consortium from South Africa. None have managed to do much to restore the system.
