Welcome to my pages.

Mali railways photos 2004

Mali facts & history in brief

Trains of Mali.

I was told there are no railways in Mali.
After retiring in our hotel room in Bamako, I heard a train whistle and moving train noises late at night.
Early next morning we were leaving for Tombouctou, but on our return I went to investigate.
I asked a few people about the whereabouts of the Railway station during our walk in Downtown Bamako and very soon we were walking around the station.
There is a Station, there are trains, that run to Senegal.
It is hard to find out much more as like any public buildings and services are under strict security, photos are discouraged and information are only given on a need to know basis and a railway buff such as me doesn't need to know, I was told.
