    I read that the railway was metre gauge, being British built, I'd thought it would be Cape gauge, 1067mm (3'6") not 1000mm?

    The line is/was metre-gauge and ties in with the old system in Tanzania. Original rolling-stock was imported from India from the metre-gauge system there. In later years much of the motive power was built so that conversion from metre-gauge to Cape gauge was possible, but no conversion occurred.
