In this film, award winning journalist and film maker, SEAN LANGAN takes a ride on one of Africa’s famous railroads – the 1000 mile The Tazara Railway.  Sean's epic train ride will take him from Dar Es Salaam to the copper mines of Zambia, travelling through quintessential African landscapes ranging from safari parks to the concrete jungles of the continent’s modern cities.  Keeping the railroad running is a constant crisis - with daily derailments, breakdowns, fuel shortages and encounters with elephants - and Sean meets the people who keep the railroad running against all the odds.  The problems facing this railroad are a perfect metaphor for the problems facing Africa itself and packed with Sean Langan's trademark humour and character portraits, that's what makes this film so much more than a treat for trainspotters.
