The Old Steam Train In Africa

Asmara, Eritrea

The railway between Asmara and Massawa and from Asmara to Keren was initially established in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The railway was functioning until 1975 but was destroyed completely during the war. Sadly the once-proud stations, the tracks and beautiful works of engineering were reduced to rubble by the colonists who used them as trenches.
