Rail transport in Madagascar
There is a regular (at least daily) goods traffic between the port city of Toamasina and the capital city of Antananarivo. There are no passenger trains on the Madarail system. Very occasionally there are special chartered trips on restored Micheline railcars for tourists. The southern line has a regular daily passenger train, which provides a slow but picturesque alternative to the recently rehabilitated road in the region.
