TUNISIA | Railways

The Paris-based company Discovery Trains has been in discussion with SNCFT and the Tunisian Government regarding bringing the 1960s MAN-built Presidential Train back into use for tourist trains. A successful test run took place at the end of February, with the train making a full circuit Tunis - Kasserine - Metlaoui - Gafsa - Tunis over a number of days.
Discovery Trains is now promoting the first public run with this train, which will take place 16-24 May 2015.
