Dakar railway station is another one of those landmark buildings that is a must-see in this city. It is located southeast of Dakar, near the harbor and a little north of the Plaza de la Independencia (sorry I don't remember the street name). It is a colonial style building, beautifully maintained, vivid, colorful and has the typical bustle of a railway station. It still keeps that classic touch of stations of yesteryear, with its ancient platforms and very old trains. They go to major cities, such as Saint Louis, or nearby countries. The ticket price isn't too expensive but the comfort and quality are not very secure on these trains.
