Here is one for every railfan. Primitive railroading unlike anything we have seen in North America. Little tank engines pulling short trains (3 to 8 cars long average) that are passenger, freight and a mixed combination. Over hills and mountains, through rock cuts, over bridges and around the curves. We get a cab ride and watch the coal being shovelled by hand. Exciting as we also see the other main mode of transportation that was not quite as fast..... camel caravans. Railroading in a different world at it's best.
