Indeed, without subsidies, trains rarely breakeven.

Jubilee is urging Kenyans not to complain about the poor state of passenger couches for two main reasons:

  1. The railway was meant for cargo in the first place. Passengers is just an extra.
  2. The “new” diesel coaches will all be replaced with better electric coaches in 5 years!

I heard the KR manager saying the first class cabins will have about 76 seat capacity. The cabin seats are not so much different from the buses plying A109 save for the washroom. Na bado fare itakuwa juu kuliko ya buses. I think guys in need of freight services will be the most beneficiaries.

I don’t expect the fare to be less than 2000 bob cheapest

1st class ni ya peasants wanajiskia wamefika. Business class ndio ya watu kama mimi who need plenty of leg room ili nikikamua nyoka nisipull muscle.:D:D:D:D:D:D

Hio ndio price ya RVR…so it’s safe to start calculations from there…hawa RVR wamelalia sana they would have made a killing from passenger service to Western, Nyanza and Riftvalley had they restored the services
