NOT North Africa!

In the early 80's I traveled on the "Limon Express" narrow gauge line in Alicante, Spain.

The line was incredibly dramatic running along the sides of high mountains for miles down to the sea. At that time the stock was very old and the whole thing had the flavour of a North African desert line, far removed from the touristic efforts around it.

This old locomotive has seen better days! The coaches were older if you can believe it.
