Eritrea narrow gauge

Post by Randy Hees » Sun Mar 05, 2017 7:59 am

Eritrea's railroad system is 950mm ( 37.4")... It shut down in 1970 during their war for independence from Ethiopia, and was effectively dismantled during the war... then rebuilt in starting in the 1990's by decommissioned solders and retired railway workers...
