The History of Tanzania Railways Corporation can be traced back from 1948 after the establishment of the East Africa Railways and Harbours Corporation (EAR&H).
East African Railways and Harbours Corporation (EAR&H) was a defunct company that operated railways and harbours in East Africa from 1948 to 1977.
It was formed in 1948 for the new East African High Commission by merging the Kenya and Uganda Railways and Harbous with the Tanganyika Railway of the Tanganyika Territory.
As well as running railways and harbours in the three territories it ran inland shipping services on Lake Victoria, Lake Kyoga, Lake Albert and the Victoria Nile and the Albert Nile.
When the East African Railways and Harbours Coorporation was dissolved in 1977 and its assets divided between Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda, Tanzania Railways Corporation was formed to take over its operations in Tanzania.
