2.4 Somalia Railway Assessment

Somalia Railway Assessment

Rail transport in Somalia consisted of the erstwhile Mogadishu-Villabruzzi Railway, which ran from Mogadishu to Jowhar, 114 km in total.
The system was built by the colonial authorities in Italian Somaliland in the 1910s.
The track gauge was 950 mm (3 ft. 1 3⁄8 in). It was dismantled in the 1940s by the British during their military occupation of the territory. To date it has not been revived.
