About Red Lizard Train

The red lizard train was built in 1910 and was a dedicated train for the former Tunisian rich. There are only six carriages in the train. The sofas, boxes and antique lamps in the carriages still reveal the scenery and good value of the year. The train, like a red lizard, travels through the dry but peculiar landscape of the Atlas Mountains. The train runs about 1.5 hours, and several stops are arranged midway for taking pictures.

    This is a train in Tunisia. It's famous for its red color. It's not long, but it looks very special. Especially when the train runs on the deserted Gobi, it feels very special. It's strongly recommended to take this train for an experience.

    Red Lizard" used to be a royal train, but now it has become a passenger train, but the old car design has not changed. Different carriages used to have different uses. The train tickets are not seated on the right number, so our team arrived at the railway station as soon as possible to board the "Royal" carriage in the picture, which is the most luxurious carriage of the whole train, with leather seats and sofas and carpets. The Red Lizard Train was originally a gift from France to the Tunisian Royal family. As the carriage was painted deep red and traveled through the red loess Canyon in the south, people gave it an image name "Red Lizard".

    Take the "Red Lizard" antique train and cross the desert canyon. Close to the window, in the lazy Mediterranean sunshine, watching the scenery along the way between Metraui and Chedeyev, listening to the nostalgic sound of the train track is very pleasant.

    If you have the opportunity to go to Tunisia, you must take the Red Lizard Train: three shifts a week (one, five, day), 10:30 departure, two hours round trip, fare 20 dinars. Tourists go directly to Matroy Railway Station to buy tickets. Advance booking is required in summer. It depends on luck to ride smoothly. It often stops because of weather or workers'strikes. The train route was built by the French at the end of the nineteenth century and used to transport phosphorus and hydrochloric acid. Tickets can be purchased and boarded at will without seat number.

    The Tunisian Red Lizard Train is Tunisia's biggest bright spot. Each carriage of this theme train is decorated differently. The unique scenery of the Atlas Mountains and the Shebika Oasis bring people light and hope.

    A red train of businessmen used to be businessmen's cars, but now it's for civilian use. But it still has the special scenery of that year and its vulgar status.
