Our party consisted of 52 people and we boarded the train in Tangier at 9 p.m. Basic is a gross understatement! The rooms are minute and some of our party shared with four to a room which must have been dreadful. They are so tiny - four bunk beds either side with a luggage rack at the end. We were supplied with two sheets each and had to make our own beds. The sheets were grey but clean. There was nothing else in the room. That was it. Our carriage was locked to stop other non-sleeping passengers entering our area. There was one toilet in the corridor near our room and we were told not to put paper down as it totally clogged up. Our leader left a tiny plastic bag hanging for our use. Needless to say I didn't use it. Someone told me it all went straight down onto the track. I didn't dare put my bum on that seat. However, the journey was good. As we set off a man came round with drinks and the coffee was very good. The room was stiflingly warm and we couldn't open the window. I did get a great sleep though. The sound and the swaying was quite delightful. My husband didn't think so though. He's a big fellow and he spent most of the night standing in the corridor and observing the stations. It was an experience and we can always say that we did it. We arrived at 8 a.m. and headed straight for our hotel and breakfast. Needless to say my first stop was the loo in my hotel room!
