Seldja Gorge, Tunisia

The Lezard Rouge was restored in 1995 and put into the tourist traffic of Seldja Gorge. The train was originally built in 1910 for the bey of Tunisia.
The train has kept its luxurious feel well, just note that there is a run for the best wagons. The leather sofas are the best, and simplest wagons have little to distinguish them from a 3rd class modern train.
Behind the leather sofas, there is an original toilet so lovely that no traveller dares to find out whether it still works.
