Morocco Rail 50th Anniversary
2013 marks the 50th anniversary of ONCF, the “Office National de Chemins de Fer” which is the Moroccan name for the Moroccan rail company. The anniversary coincides with the 100 year anniversary of the first train track being laid in Morocco. The occasion is being celebrated around the country during a six month period at various art and cultural festivals.
In Marrakech as part of the celebrations, the ONCF has positioned in front of the train station two solar powered posts where it is possible to charge mobile phones, laptops etc (cables are not provided).
