Italian engineers and electrification plan

(from our own correspondent)
SIMLA, Sept.20.

Italian engineers in Kabul are reported to be collecting engines and rolling stock for the first railway to be opened in Afghanistan between Kabul and Darulaman, six miles from the capital. The construction of the line is expected to begin shortly. The possibility of making it an electric tramway is discussed in certain Afghan papers.

The reference to Italian engineers is interesting – one might have expected the people involved to be German.
