Tickets Please! Says the Ticket Examiner when boarding the train. This train ticket served as a courtesy trip due to the Royal Visit of Princess Margaret in Mauritius back in Sep 1956. The Last passenger trains in Mauritius knew an end on 31st March of the same year, but Goods Train continued to operate till 1964 where it was then all dismantled. Both a sad day for the country, even though the authorities had their reasons to discontinue the Railways in Mauritius.
And a little glimpse of the Royal Visit:
