Eritrea Tour and Travel

The Eritrean Railway

The Eritrean Railway authority has rehabilitated the 100-year-old Italian Steam locomotive trains, which use coal, and the old Littorina, diesel-driven rail cars. It is such an exhilarating ride all the way from Asmara to Massawa.

The Eritrean Railway is the only railway system in Eritrea. It was constructed between 1887 and 1932 during the Italian Eritrea colony and connected the port of Massawa with Asmara.

How to book a ride for Eritrea Steam Train

The Eritrean steam train does not follow a fixed schedule as a chartered train. However, for the workers to know how to prepare the train, it should be requested a few days in advance. They provide round-trip services from Asmara to Nefasit and Arberebu on Sundays (departure time 8:00 AM). Don’t hesitate to get in touch with our customer support for more information.
