Wheat by rail in Afghanistan

There is a small photo from 2007 on the website of the Private Sector Development Directorate of Afghanistan’s Ministry Of Commerce And Industry, which shows the off-loading of wheat imported from Uzbekistan at Hayratan.

The caption says The rail-wagons carry the wheat from Uzbekistan, off-load, and return empty. In the absence of facilities in Hairaton, these wagons could be utilized to export/transit goods from Afghanistan to Uzbekistan and beyond. However, there is no formal arrangement between the two countries to allow such exports or transit of goods through Uzbekistan.
