At last – photos of the railway at Towraghondi, Afghanistan’s border crossing with Turkmenistan. Donald Hill has various pictures of the terminal, including two shots of a Turkmenistan railway locomotive on 28 November 2007.

It is a 2TE10L twin-section loco, number 2086 (or is that just one half of it?). The loco is not a thing of beauty, but it is real rail action in Afghanistan.
