I have long thought it would be good to document this line and its history. This has become significantly more pressing in the last few years as the metre-gauge line is gradually being replaced by a Chinese built standard-gauge line.
We start with an intreiguing narrow gauge tramway system in Mombasa.
While doing research on the route of the Mombasa line, I came across photographs and, in particular, old postcards that showed traces of a 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.
