Sudan - more NG remnants in Malakal

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.

Sudan - more NG remnants in Malakal

Post by John Ashworth »

A short piece of track crosses the riverside road in the Egyptian Quarter of Malakal. The road is now cut in places by drainage ditches and is pretty much disused. That's the Nile in the background, incidentally.

You still have to be a bit careful with photography in Malakal, especially in areas such as the river port and airport, which are considered "security" areas.

A few years back I had an SLR with a 90% lens (which they do not seeem to do anymore). It looked like an SLR lenses but in fact took a photo out of the side of the lens (via a small widow pretending to be aperture info).

It was great and I got some excellent pics with it!

The lens was designed for taking photos of children and people - without them looking self conscious. Worked well for this too!
