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.
