I know the railways in Belgium looked at the Moroccan trains when they rebuilt the trains in Belgium

But I miss one thing at the Moroccan trains. I miss the Moroccan star at the front on the trains. I liked it and it was very typical for the Moroccan version of those trains. Now when they don’t have the star they look just like the trains in Belgium.

Wow you seem to know a lot about moroccan railways Actually the five star has been removed from the top of the coaches because the ONCF has been changed 4 or 5 years ago.

Morocco has great railway system. I am sure this means more people are taking train than driving?
