The train of Manakara

Reportage about the famous train of Madagascar

This train connects Fianarantsoa with Manakara, and is the economic base for all the towns in which it stops along its journey. It is also a tourist attraction for foreigners who visit the island and want to enjoy a different way of traveling.

In the project you can see the ‘backroom’ of the train: mechanics performing maintenance tasks, workers loading goods, employees in their offices … It also shows the different traveling classes available, with a focus on the second class, where locals travel, in addition to freight wagons and the locomotive.
