East African Railways

East African Railways, a rail network that was jointly operated by Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania, broke up in 1977. Each country now administers its own system with varied success. The Tanzania-Zambia (Tanzam or Tazara) Railway between Lusaka, Zambia, and the port of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, is an important railway in the region as well.
