Uganda Railways

Until 1974, rail services in Kenya and Uganda were organised as a single operating entity within the East African Railways Corporation, although each country-system separately collected revenue for goods loaded in that country. Train and traffic control in both countries was centred at the Nairobi headquarters, where locomotives and rolling stock for the two-country system were kept and maintained. Financial pressures on the Corporation in 1974 led to the imposition by Nairobi headquarters of separate servicing and maintenance charges on the Uganda district.
