Very interesting article. It's not a kind of railfaning trip I would like to do. I think I am old for that.

I appreciate your sharing that story.  Not something I would care to do but I certainly applaud the intrepid traveler.

In 2002 the BBC aired "Sahara with Michael Palin". The first episode included this same train https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q4vSy6KXByQ

Take the possibility of being kidnapped out of the equation, and I'd give it a try. 

Anybody know the ancestry of the dead locomotives in the photos?  Looks like modified SD40s in service now.
