Gari la Moshi - Steam locomotives of the East African Railways

£34.25

Detail history of the development and service of all the steam locomotive classes which served on the railways of Kenya, Uganda and Tanganyikya (Tanzania).

This is largely the very modern fleet of what had been East African Railways, where steam survived well into the 1970s, but also includes the locomotives of the German railways in Tanganyika up to 1918. Briefly also covered are the sub-metre gauge lines of Tanganyika, and the Zanzibar Railway.

216 pages. Very well written, with considerable assistance from EAR personnel, and profusely illustrated with photos, drawings of each class, maps and a 15 page colour section. Hardbound.

This book and Locomotives of Zimbabwe will cause a surfeit of Garratts to the most dedicated enthusiast of the type!
