The Adunis to Mambiza Railway, also known as the Trans-Bahian Railway and historically known as either the 'Adunis to Sainte-Germaine Railway' or the 'Imperial Rail', is a semi-complete railway linking eastern and western Bahia by way of the Ténéré desert. The construction of the railway began in the late 19th century under the supervision of Grégoire Cuvillier, Governor of Atudée. The main line was completed by 1922, with a planned modification and second line halting due to the Great War.
