Five diesel locomotives leased from Kenya Railways Corporation (KRC) by the Magadi Soda company some years ago have been returned and will be available for use by Rift Valley Railways. The soda concern has acquired five locos of its own from the National Railway Equipment Company (NREC) of Illinois in the USA, which specialises in the remanufacture of diesel units.

The agreement with KRC in terms of which Magadi Soda has running rights over the main-line between Konza and Mombasa remains valid until October 2023.
