South Sudan stationary steam revisited yet again

Photos of motive and rolling stock, stations, signals and anything else train related in the Sudan! Photos should be 800x600 pixels, maximum size 130K. Very good ones will be moved to the Online Gallery, the rest will be pruned away after 14 days to conserve space.

South Sudan stationary steam revisited yet again

Post by John Ashworth »

Back to the old industrial complex in Nzara, near Yambio in the far south western corner of South Sudan. The steam engines seem pretty much as they were when I last visited them 5 years ago. The major change is that they are now in South Sudan, not Sudan, as South Sudan became independent in July 2011. Once again I signed the original leather-bound visitor book, my third time.
