BOUARFA, Morocco - Edouard Kunz knows timekeeping is important but the former Swiss watch mechanic admits that James Bond's Oriental Desert Express in remote eastern Morocco never runs on schedule.

The train, made famous in the 2015 Bond movie Spectre, trundles tourists between the town of Oujda and the former mining city of Bouarfa along a 350-kilometer stretch of desert.

"It takes between eight and 12 hours to make the trip, sometimes even more," says Kunz, 70, who blames sandstorms for frequent delays.
