This is the main reason that a railway line was built between western Tunisia and the coast: Phosphate ore. Probably this wagon was broken and taken out of the train.

SNCFT - Tunisia
In Seldja trucks dump the phosphate ore close to the railway line. Bulldozers then put it in railway cars again. Although it looks a toy truck is dumping the ore directly in the wagon, there is some 100 meters distance between them!
