Railway cars that ran from Freetown to Pendembu- old photos

The National Railway Museum at Cline Town

“De train for Bo ‘ee no agree for go…………”

Sierra Leone’s railway was discontinued in 1975, but some of the steam engines and railway cars that ran from Freetown to Pendembu and Makeni can be seen at the National Railway Museum in Cline Town. The car which Queen Elizabeth II was to have used during her 1961 visit has been restored and is on display. The Queen never used the car – she had a change in schedule.
