Kenya Railways said an earth tremor caused a one-and-half hour delay on the Madaraka Express Passenger service inter-county train from Nairobi to Mombasa today, Wednesday.
“The train was forced to come to an unscheduled stop today in Tsavo West National Park following reports of an earth tremor in Voi,” Kenya Railways said in a statement.
The corporation said its crew got information about the tremor while at Ndio station area in Voi.
“The stop was necessary as officials in the area carried out investigations to ascertain if the railway line had been affected by the tremor,” KRC said.
The stop took around one hour before the train screw was given a green light from the control center to proceed with the journey.
