Hairatan photo

Not sure what is happening here, but there is a train.

Turkmenistan – Aqina railway photographs

Some photos of the railway from Turkmenistan to Aqina on the Afghan border, which was opened in November 2016.

Afghanistan’s railway door to Europe

Some pictures have appeared showing the new railway at Aqina on the Turkmenistan – Afghanistan border.

It would be nice if the opening ceremony led to a consensus on romanised spellings of the various place names – it would make tracking the project so much easier!

Photo of the Atamurat – Aqina railway?

The Khaama Press story Lazuli railway network to link Afghanistan to Europe and China soon published on 19 October 2016 has a photo which might be of the new railway from Atamurat in Turkmenistan to the Afghan border and Aqina. If so, this is only the second time I have seen photos of the line.
