Mauritania’s 2.5 kilometre long iron ore train is usually described as the world’s longest train. We recorded this – our first attempt to record in stereo – by the train tracks in the outskirts of Nouadhibou on a very windy day, and getting very strange looks from the women walking past to collect their water.
