    All railroads in Nigeria is for cargo carrying.
    The railroad from Cameroon begins in Douala, passing by Edea, Yaoundé (the capital) and Belané Oya (north Cameroon).
    The TAH-8 (Trans African Highway-8) serving from Lagos(Nigeria) to Monbassa and passing by Cameroon land is not finished in Cameroon inland.
    So I believe the best way to go from Lagos to Cameroon is by air, or by shipping from Nigeria to Douala, and, later having a railroad trip to Yaoundé...
    I will paste some links concerned in this issue:

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trans-...

    http://wikitravel.org/en/Cameroon

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Douala...

    United Nations/Economic Commission for Africa is intending and supporting the Highways construction in Africa in order to develop the african countries. Maybe they have some up-to-date news. The last report I read at my monitor screen was written at 2003 and very few kilometers to conclude.

    Thank you for the help. A new question: I am looking for flights from Lagos to Douala, but all websites I tried don't give flights.. Which are the websites that do give them?
