    Default Very Long Train

    Today I found a very long train (a kilometre) in the Mauritanian desert at 21░17'44.07"N, 15░54'19.31"W.
    These trains serve the hueg iron ore mines to the north east, 22░40'14.97"N, 12░41'27.21"W. I dont think these mines are mentioned in the mines section of the files area, but they're spectacular, it looks like there is an enormous black mountain made of iron ore sat rusting in the sun, and the mines and their towns are just tiny little things on the edge.

    Nice train, but it's definitely not the longest found, but then again you aren't claiming it is. A one km train is indeed a huge train, especially to a human.
