The commuter train was headed to carry commuters from Pipeline when the accident occurred.

Hundred of commuters to the city were left stranded at several railway stations, including at Makadara and Donholm

The commuters were left feeling the financial pinch since train fares cost them Sh40 to the city centre while matatus charge Sh100.
