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.

A couple more pictures, taken from a report on the "Unity Support Fund", a fund set up to make unity between north and south Sudan attractive before the referendum in 2011 when southerners will have the choice of unity or secession. Unity certainly hasn't been made attractive, but anything that gets a railway line repaired can't be all bad!

From the writing on the banners these black and white photos appear to have been taken at Aweil, which is en route from Babanusa to Wau.
