The Standard Gauge railway is set to be unveiled this coming June and two ladies are set to be at the forefront of it all.
They go by the names Wendy Kathambi and Alice Mugure, 26 and 27 respectively and they will be among the first drivers who will be steering the Standard Gauge Railway.
The two ladies are products of China’s Baoji Railway Technical College where they enrolled into the rigorous SGR training programme where they learnt everything trains including light Diesel locomotive maintenance.
Fort that they were part of the inaugural test drive in March that saw them drive passengers from Nairobi to Sultan Hamud and back, a 105 KM stretch and will definitely play a major role in propelling the new locomotives.
Here is a photo of the two very busy at work:
