A general view of the Beira railway station in Beira taken on November 2, 2010. The city is the terminal of the Beira railroad, the oldest railway system in Mozambique. The Sena railway links the port city of Beira to massive coal mines in northwest Mozambique. The rail corridor is a crucial piece of infrastructure for several multinational coal mining projects that have begun exploration in the northwest Mozambican district of Moatize.
