[Italian] Empire, Last Stop

For its times, also this train was running at high speed: 35 km per hour. One century ago, hundreds of italian soldiers built a very modern railway between the Red Sea and the 2400 meters of the Asmara plateau. Today, in the middle of the wounds of a recent war, the former italian colony in Africa is attempting an even more incredible enterprise. To put again into operation that ruined railway. How? With the same locomotives. And the same engineers.
