The Mauritanian Railway, one of the world's longest and heaviest train in the world transports iron ore from a remote mining town in Mauritania to a coastal city cutting through the Sahara Desert. The ride lasts anywhere between 19-30 hours and a few brave locals use it to travel back and forth with supplies. The dangerous trek leads to several unfortunate deaths every year as people fall off the train. Thomas and his friend Drew Binsky attempt to find this train and embark on the dangerous journey through the Sahara.
Thank you to Drew Binsky for coming with me and guiding me through how to travel in this part of the world! Check out his channel here:

    • @Kay K What? How lol.

    • @greninja warrior13 A lot of the terrorist flee from Afghanistan and reside near the Afghanistan-Pakistan border. I've been to Pakistan 4-5 times (probably spent 8-10 months in the country) now and no attacks happened.

  • Imagine the people that built the railroad

  • Nice

  • What an experience!!! How beautiful

  • It doesn't look dangerous or exiting at all. Especially with all this equipment you prepared ahead. You just riding a dirty train and scream "wooooo!" All the time. I had more dangerous visit in a grocery shop today.

  • Narrator: THERE IS NO ... UH ... THERE IS NOTHING That's true for cars, tourist choices and mixed in local brains.

  • Eating by hand is not a "local custom". It's done in whole North Africa. It's a form of missing etiquette as part of this culture.

    • It's also common e. g. in Sri Lanka, India and most other poor nations.

  • So no one in that mining village cared that two white guys were waltzing their way onto the train? Who did you pay off (and how much was it)? Or does literally no one care?

  • Yes dude Stealth Tactical UK

  • Thomas and Drew, combining the best elements of extraordinary adventure and exploration on the oddest mode of transportation in the most severe uninhabited dessert of Sahara. It’s brutal and it’s gruelingly difficult,but nevertheless this is one of your best contents. Congratulations to you both. Drew Binsky Yes Theory Thomas This is certainly one unforgettable experience of a lifetime. From: Unforgettable Mae 🇵🇭🇵🇭🇵🇭🇵🇭
