Just got back yesterday from trip to look at the new Chinese-built railway projects in Ethiopia. Photo one: Eastbound 11-car passenger train approaches the Adama station for an on-time arrival on its 472 mile run from Addis Ababa. Ethiopia (7,700 ft. elevation) to Djibouti at sea level. This Chinese-built line opened to traffic in January 2018. Photo taken November 15, 2018. Photo two: Electric locomotive pulls eastbound 11 car passenger train about 10 miles east of Adama, Ethiopia. November 15, 2018.
