Here is a closer view of Death Angel's Pass, 7 kilometers (4 and a half miles) north of the village in the Meerkat Family's homeland in the Cunene Province of Angola.

"Passagem do Anjo da Morte" (Death Angel's Pass) by moyomongoose
+4


For several hundred feet, the mountain pass is so narrow, the dirt road goes down to only one lane and must share the same right-of-way space with the narrow gauge railroad tracks.
On one side is a rock wall going straight up, and on the other side is a sheer drop going several hundred feet straight down...A wrong move on this stretch of road will get you killed real quick...It's no place to be stupid.

Speed limit for both vehicular traffic and trains while on this pass is 10 km/h (6mph).
Trains must toot their whistle at 10 second intervals to warn cars and trucks not to proceed onto the pass when a train approaches.

Looks like it has trains with square wheels and derails at least once or twice on a trip. Also human roadkill might be spotted alongside the tracks or roadside. I know from SpaceGhetto which showed such sights (body left unburied even...)

I've no intention of ever going to such a country (climate, pests, language, food, diseases, permanent war, poor road & rail conditions, )

It's what fate has given the animals of that country.
Of course the trains don't have square wheels like the rumor from anthro-animals from other countries have it.

'Course some of the trains had seen better days in the USA, but had been retired to the purgatory of Angola and environs. Still they show their age and resistance to repairs. I can't vouch for the rails either.

It scrapes by though.
