Camrail launches Yaoundé – Douala InterCity express
15 May 2014







CAMEROON: A non-stop passenger service linking Yaoundé to Douala was introduced on May 5, three days after an inauguration ceremony led by Prime Minister Philémon Yang and Bolloré Africa Logistics CEO Dominique Lafont.

Bolloré’s railway concessionaire Camrail says the trains will offer ‘a level of comfort never previously available in the country’, providing an attractive travel option on a route where the ‘road death toll is one of the highest in the world’.

There are two ‘InterCity’-branded trains each way per day, leaving Douala at 06.00 and 14.45 and Yaoundé at 10.25 and 19.20. The 263 km journey takes 3 h 40 min, but there are plans to reduce this to 3 h. Fares are FrCFA9 000 in first class and FrCFA6 000 in premium class.

Camrail has ordered a total of 55 coaches from CSR Nanjing Puzhen. The InterCity trains comprise two first class air-conditioned cars with 64 seats and four ventilated premium cars with 88 seats. Last year six CC2500 diesel locomotives were supplied by National Railway Equipment Co.

At the launch ceremony the Prime Minister said the national five-year railway master plan with an estimated budget of FrCFA15 000bn would transform the metre-gauge network, starting with the modernisation of 175 km of track between Batchenga and Nkaa

Some photos of Cameroon railways from my visit last year:

I just wish the Intercity train seen above was running - I spent about 8 hours on a train just from Yaounde to Edea, much of which was in total darkness!

Cameroon and Chad to study 700km rail link
Monday, June 09, 2014



CAMEROON and its landlocked neighbour Chad reached an agreement on June 3 to carry out a feasibility study into the construction of a 700km line linking Ngaoundéré in northeast Cameroon with Ndjamena, the Chadian capital.

Financing has yet to be agreed for the project, which will require investment estimated at Central African Francs 1.4bn ($US 2.92bn).

The concession holder for the railway will be Cameroonian railway operator Camrail, owned by Bolloré Africa Logistics, a subsidiary of France's Bolloré Group.

With some 80% of Chad's imports and exports currently transported by road via Cameroon's main port and commercial capital of Douala, Chad is looking to expand trade through rail and other infrastructure projects linking the landlocked country to the Atlantic coast.

Cameroon's transport minister Mr Robert Nkili says the project would also benefit northern regions of Cameroon, where traders were struggling to export their products to other regions. His Chadian counterpart, Mr Adoum Younousmi, added: "If the work programme is respected, construction should begin in 2016."

In 2012 Cameroon announced plans to build railway lines to expand trade with Chad as well as southern neighbours such as Gabon and Equatorial Guinea, but construction has not yet begun.
