Possibly better picture to show the size of this vehicle vs size of the track/rails.

I don't know much about rail related things but just by eye it looks good 50% longer and a fair bit taller than CP Rail locomotives I see in Brampton and those run on much larger (current standard) 4Ft 8 inch track.Yikes.

Butelczynski - your photo is of the actual engine Billy is making - Karamoja. Standing in the Railway Museum in Nairobi.

------------------------------------------

Billy - you are correct.

Class 57's were the older locos and were made for the KUR&H (Kenya Uganda Railways & Harbours).

They were known actually by the KURH as the EC3 Class and went into service between 1939 and 1941. They were all coal-fired and 12 locos made up the Class.

In 1948 the East African Commission came into being and Tanganyika joined the Kenya/Uganda entity (KUR&H), East African Railways & Harbours (EAR&H) being formed. The KUR EC3's were at this stage renamed Class 57's.

EARH then ordered 18 more EC3's from Beyer Peacock, who then built the whole batch in 1919. These locos were, however, all oil-fired, and EAR&H thus designated them as Class 58's to differentiate then from the 57's.

--------------------------------------------------

Both Classes hauled stock over 2 million miles during their life.

Oil storage tanks for the Class 58's were installed in some of the remote areas by EAR&H.



The vehicles were painted in a cream and EARH "red".

Here is an official EAR&H photo from one of their publications. The locos we're always exceptionally clean and sparkled before trips. Grubby after a trip, though the tanks always remained shiny.

Locos had their own individual crews - hence their clean condition as this was a matter of pride.



And one of their general side drawings.

This is amazing. With the paint on and all the rivets I'd be hard pressed to say if this was real metal or not. It also looks 'heavy'.
