Diesel in Aweil

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.

Did South Sudan already constitue an independant national railway company?

No. There is only one branch from the Republic of Sudan into the Republic of South Sudan, a couple of hundred of kms of track from Babanusa in Sudan to Wau in South Sudan, and it is operated entirely by Sudan. I somehow doubt whether South Sudan will set up a railway company just for that one small section, but it will be interesting to see what happens when/if new railway lines are built from Kenya and Uganda into South Sudan.
