Now if they could only get the trains running! Hopefully there will soon be airport connection. Traffic in Dakar is insane!

A direct line from DSS airport will appear here soon. The visit to see the railway station was ordinary.

The building is lovely from the outside but know it is being renovated and while you can look inside the glass you cannot enter it. Worth a visit to see the architecture and decoration.

It was a central railway station at Dakar and now the service has been suspended due to renovation. But the nice architecture on the front way of railway station has been maintained as earlier bearing it's old heritage and culture. It looks so beautiful.

You have to see it because it’s part of the history of African railway. They’ve built a new entrance at the front for the fast train to the new airport and beyond but more importantly they’re rehabbing the original station at some great expense.

Signs posted outside say the renovation will be complete by 2019. I doubt it. Too bad it fell into disrepair, looks like it could have been cool back in the day

The railway station was closed a few years ago but the railway station remains. Apparently the station will be redeveloped and trust the Government forces the developers to keep the façade. A number of people who appeared to living in the old station.

If you're in Dakar, you ought to visit. There isn't much to see, but the country is improving its rail system. We stayed at the Ibis Hotel (beside the French Embassy) and it was an easy walk.
