National Geographic : Trains on the Mauritania Railway are up to 3 kilometers in length, making them among the largest and heaviest in the world. What are your thoughts on this impressive railway?

Azliana Lyana : 3 kilometres long train? Wow! It's amazing how the main cars manage to pull the whole load. This is a very well made video by the way. Almost feels like watching a movie with a very unsettling undertone. I'm just.. amazed by the train, still. Thanks for sharing National Geographic.

Shahrian Nazim Shihab : Love my brothers and sisters in Mauritania. From Bangladesh.

Kevin Patriot Washington : Solar powered coolers and cheap sunglasses would make life less arduous.

Claudio Silva : Youtube needs more stuff like this!

Flamingo Frames : This film glorifies how the life of a nomad or the native to Mauritania is connected to Mauritanice Railway.It also tells us about the world's longest train(over 3Km long) carrying tones of iron ore from the heart of Sahara towards the urban cities. The camera angles used in the film are so pure and unique. With the intensive use of extreme long shots in the film, it brings out the real picture of Mauritanice Railway. The camera moments are so fluid to diversify the picture. Use of deep and soft sound takes you through the vibe of the film. It also predicts the slow and snoring sound of the desert. Hats off to the team of the film and best wishes from Flamingo Frames Pune, Maharashtra, India(411033).

ramki695 : I am extremely happy to have viewed this video. Hats of to Nat Geo for having brought out this amazing video. I was transported to another world with the view and back ground music. What is more important is how the people have adapted to the environment and yet live their life to the fullest possible extent. Hats of to the people of Mauritania. God bless you.
