Longer than the last two ones? If I'm not wrong that convoys have around 40-45 wagons...

The longest train has 682 wagons!!! It was a testtrain for new locos ( 8 pieces! ) in australia.

That was 2001. The track was 275 km. And the train was 7,353 Km long.

If this train had been passengers it would been a long way to toilet and restaurant.  ;D

Unfortunately, I haven't found any pictures.  :(

The longest regular train is in africa. The Mauritania SNIM with iron ore.

Perhaps you are refering to this one:
QuoteThe train carrying iron from Zouerate to the coast at Nouadhibou, is probably the world's longest train. Normally its length is as much as 3 kilometres. The whole journey takes around 12 hours

This might be the australian one: http://es.youtube.com/watch?v=9LsuNWjRaAo
And this the mauritanian: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yXXFZCsuQPk

IMPRESSIVE!!  :o

Last year this topic was on old forum and I browsed youtube a bit as a result; there are videos of many other really long trains - one american spanning the whole horizont, shot from a car; also a few from... Brazil? Oil tankers, also really many. Just go through the "related" lists and see for yourself if the numbers are so exceptional ;)

My projects... Tools for messing with Simutrans graphics. Graphic archive - templates and some other stuff for painters. Development logs for most recent information on what is going on. And of course pak128!

heh, in the australian test-train-video you can see how the cameraman's arm is getting weak after a while :)

I was thinking about the sense of such huge trains, you always need the same energy no matter if you got four normal trains or one huge with four engines. So you only save money for drivers, eh? Since drivers in europe are most probably better paid than in Africa it would even make more sense in Europe.

But since we got rules for everything (here in Germany at least), i guess it just wouldn't be allowed   ;)
