Train Services to Kilome


One can ride a passenger train then alight at Konza,  ulu, kiu or sultan Hamud stations choosing to either be met by host or take a boda boda(motorcycle taxi) to destination.
Question being asked is with konzacity set to be launched this month(January), will they extend the syokimau station services to konza?
There is also talk of a standard gauge rail set to be laid parallel to mombasa road to allow faster trains be used. How prepared are business people & locals for that improved access network in the region.?
How adventurous and entrepreneural are Kenyans planning to be towards the great opportunity here to access Kenya’s first inland settlement after coast for Europeans settlers. Opportunities here include tracing how these settlers arrived, settled, and even moved about before Kenya imported it’s 1st car. Other opportunities include agriculture(macademia nuts, mango, cowpea[kunde’kenyan’],ovacado & lemon trade).
As Ranches broke up a number of importers sought land for inland container depots-this presents opportunities in import, clearence, security and transport businesses amoung other opportunities.
What of filming opportunities…

Train services(passenger) depart Nairobi every monday, wednesday, and Friday at 7:00pm, arriving Kilome after 2hrs enroute to Mombasa.
