Wako na first class kwa hio train ya kuenda Kisumu? How is the experience. Do they have daytime travel…

Yes,but it is not worth it.Exremely crappy service.First class is ksh2400,regular is ksh900.Tulikwama pale longonot station for 3hours because a train bound for Nairobi had stalled blocking the line.Then the restaurant food iko but priority wanapatia railways staff.Kuna dem mmoja mjaka ana serve alikua overwhelmed vibaya sana.Unakaa chini she takes 45minutes to take your order and another 30 minutes to bring it.And when she brings it iko baridi.I gave up and ordered a gilbeys and water which i sipped as the events unfolded.Some kale guy came and sat opposite me and ordered chips and chapati and chai.A combination sijawai ona.Akaletewa after 1hour zikiwa baridi.Akazusha akasema apelekewe kwa microwave.He remained with the chapos and tea.After 30minutes anauliza waiter where are my chipos?Zilikua zimeenda ku pashwa tu moto.The waiter comes back anamshow ameziendea akapata zimeuzwa na hakuna chipo zingine.The only option ni aongezewe ma chapo equivalent in value to the chipo akule mdogomdogo.
A journey that started at 630pm on Friday ended at 1140am on Saturday.Totally not worth it with the crappy service.dont waste your time and money The train stops every where,you cant charge your phone anywhere even in the room and retaurant because at some point wanazima generators.After molo the train moves at 32kph hadi kisumu.Sijiwai boeka hivyo.No daytime travel.

When daybreak came i chose to go sit at the restaurant because at least i can chat with people.At 830am the train came to a stop at a place i thought at least tuko karibu na Kisumu.Just to be told “hapa ni Fort Ternan” .Felt like dieing bana because it meant bado Koru,Muhoroni,Chemelil and some other station before now getting to Kisumu.Got to Kisumu with all the bones aching with the heat.Never again.

That railway line needs to be totally redesigned.When going to kikuyu station mnapita chini ya highway A104 towards ndenderu then the train makes a 180 degrees turn to the left,goes back and passes below highway A104 again before heading to the station 6 kms from the underpass.Circling towards the kikuyu station is a mind boggling 13kms taking 27minutes.Then the train has to take another 180 degrees turn to the right so as to head towards Limuru and Uplands stations.
