The Asian Development Bank has uploaded some photos of the Hairatan – Mazar-i-Sharif railway to Flickr today.
Unfortunately ABD seems to have turned off the ability to embed the photos on external websites, so to see them try this link: ADB’s Afghanistan photo set and click around the lninks to railway, railroad etc.
The photos include construction work underwayfor the Mazar-i-Sharif line, freight wagons being unloaded, the Afghan deputy minister of city rehabilitation posing in front of a TEM2 in Mazar-i-Sharif in June 2012 (text says 6 June, metadata says 7 June), and a passenger train(! possibly carrying the minister?) with TEM2-6561 hauling an Uzbek Railways liveried coach.
There are lots of other interesting photos of railway projects in Asia.
