Uganda Railways

The Uganda Railways has increasingly become a go-to location for Artists ranging from visual Artists to performing artists. I have recently attended 2 events held at that place and they have been so remarkable.

One was the (Free)Ak curated by @robinahnansubuga and another being the kampala fashion week.

By the way the trains are still functional and you can imagine the number of people there use them now.

At exactly 5:30pm, the train sets off with some security officers patrolling every wagon to ensure that everything is okay.
The train swiftly moves through Industrial Area and Kinawattaka and makes the first stop near Makerere University Business School (MUBS) where some people disembark and others board.
The next stop is around Spear Motors before proceeding to Kireka and Bweyogerere, from where majority of the passenger’s disembark. The train completes the journey at Namanve by 6:15pm, and turns to take those headed for the city.

All in all it’s a 45 Minute Journey from Kampala to Namanve by train as compared to about 2 hours by road in this peak time.
