Probably The Longest Train in the World





This extremely long train can be spotted in Mauritania, deep in the Sahara Desert. It carries iron ore from central Mauritania to the Nouadibou harbour.

I have a love/hate relationship with YouTube. While it's great to see all this content, it's terrible to see how poor most people are as camera-men. For instance, if you're going to stand in the same place for two minutes, BRING A TRIPOD!

I've seen longer trains, too. In fact, by definition, I don't think any train with only three engines pulling it can be the longest... a truly long train runs at least 5-6. Here in Washington, we have trains of containers, cars, lumber and the occasional 737 fuselage that run on 6 engines.

I think this one just looks longer because it has hundreds of the same type of car. I did enjoy it's crazy-ass caboose. (It looks like a mobile home on a flat-bed.)

i've personally seen much longer trains, in the midwest USA carrying grain they go on for 30 minutes and have 5 or 6 engines pulling them
