We went to the railway museum in downtown Nairobi to see what was there. Among other things was a motorised bicycle on railway wheels, a set of 4-8-2+2-8-4 steam locos and a variety of other interesting equipment. We then checked out the adjacent yard from a busy pedestrian overpass and saw 2 yard switchers working too far away to shoot.
(map) Nairobi is the capital city of the East African republic of Kenya. It was built as a railway town and has a large railway museum and a number of active meter guage freight lines leaving the city.
