 Definition A railway constructed at the end of the 19th century to link Uganda to the coast. [d] [e]

This article is mostly derived from M F Hill Permanent Way: the story of the Kenya and Uganda railway, Eastern African Railways and Harbours, 1949; and C Miller The Lunatic Express: an entertainment in imperialism, Macmillan, 1971; with some personal observation (I used to travel on the line six times a year for a period in the 1950s). The section on the decline and renewal is taken from government press releases. I am sorry there is hardly anything on rolling stock. The sources I have used contain only sporadic and unsystematic information: I think that in the 1950s Garratt engines were in use, but this could be wrong. --Martin Wyatt (talk) 22:31, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
