Mombasa, Kenya

Postby rogerfarnworth » Tue May 22, 2018 1:30 pm

You will probably have noticed on the forum that I have recently been focussing on the metre-gauge lines that served Kampala and Uganda from the East African coast at Mombasa. While doing research on the route of the Mombasa line, I came across photographs and, in particular, old postcards that showed traces of tramway or trolleyway in the streets of Mombasa in the late nineteenth century. I thought it needed more research and this blog is the result.
