There are nearly 50 railway stations between Mombasa and Nairobi . I  initially set out to visit all of them, but ended up visiting around 40. Partly because some of them had already been demolished, while others were located too far in the interior, to access by road. The only stations that were still functioning and where a station master was present were Mombasa, Changamwe, Konza and Nairobi. 

This photo series does not include photos of Kibwezi, Simba, Darajani and Makindu stations, which will be uploaded later. Along with photos of  the railway stations within Nairobi, such as; Marimbeti, Athi- River, Dandora and Embakasi.

The second phase (Nairobi – Kisumu) of the project took place in March 2016. We were able to visit most stations in Rift valley and Western Kenya, although we were not successful in visiting Nakuru railway station, one of the biggest stations along this line, due to time constraints.

Visit the scenes page to see more photos of the trip ,or the memory wall to read individual stories about the railway. Stay tuned for updates on the blog.
