  • It was a very interesting historical event. I enjoyed every moment walking back in history enjoying what I had just been taught or read in history books. Was able to compare the intial steam engines and to compare with the diesel and ultimately with the electric contemporary trains

  • I like the old engines. If you are a student who has interest in machines better visit.

  • Nice that it's been improved and cleaned up. Can we have clear photography charges written down? Nice location but needs direction on charging for photography.

  • Must visit. A look into the past railway history of East Africa, sure to provoke some serious nostalgia.

  • Great history on how the Railway line made Kenya. Marvelous place to visit.
