"The longest train I ever saw / was one hundred box cars long"

garyomaha sends this story the longest train in the world. Interesting slice of culture there, too. For example: "If you want to come to, or leave, Nouadhibou, there are no good alternatives to this train."

What would that be like? The only places in the United States I've been to with a comparable access restriction were Barrow, AK, and Hawaii. Talk about worlds apart.
