Red Lizard Train

Red Lizard Train — You’ll feel just like Indiana Jones as you step aboard the Red Lizard Train, called the Lézard Rouge in French. That’s because it was used in the Indiana Jones movie The Last Crusade, in which he fights on top of it. This famous historic train offers rides for tourists, running from Metlaoui to Redayef through Tunisia’s flat rocky desert. The train track was once used by mining trains to carry phosphates, and you’ll pass through the Selja Gorge before entering the mining areas in the mountains. The French antique train was built in the 19th century and is an attraction in itself, with its red wooden panels and old-fashioned carriages.
