The Madarail website lists two options from Antananarivo to Antsirabe:

Both options seem to run for weddings and such events, according to the description.
Also, the French Wikivoyage says the line is closed, but I don't know how recent the information is.

Is there any regular train service that individuals can use, more economical than hiring a whole train for yourself?

At madarail.mg you can find an overview of current routes.

Antananarivo and Antsirabe are not on it (September 2014).

No, there is only cargo rail service between from Antananarivo to Antsirabe.

The only public transportation options are taxi-brousse and plane.

As of August 2017, there are still no passenger train services from Antananarivo. (For a while, the vintage Micheline did run a tourist trip from Antananarivo at weekends, but it no longer operates any services.) Passenger trains in Madagascar run on at least one day per week on the following routes:

  • Moramanga to Toamasina (Tamatave)

  • Moramanga to Ambatondrazaka

  • Fianarantsoa to Manakara

Each of these journies takes between half a day and one day.
