Nairobi, Kenya

(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.

January 30th, 2006

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.
