FCE - Fianarantsoa Cote Est passenger trains
The spectacular FCE train line links the highland city of Fianarantsoa with the east coast town of Manakara. Built between 1926 and 1936, it traverses some of Madagascar's most scenic countryside on its 163 km path from the high plateau to the sea. The line, which is one of the three steepest in the world (along with Birma and Ecuador), has no fewer than 67 bridges and 48 tunnels and offers the traveler magnificent vistas as it descends the escarpment east of Fianarantsoa.
