Hey @WimbledonW what do you think this this announcement?
Looks like a new terminal
Ethiopian avocados exported by train
The new terminal looks most impressive. Everything is on straight track, whereas Moorebank is folded in on itself due to lack of space.
It would of course be nicer if it were for a train load of Avocardoes rather than a container load.
Here is a problem.
(A) Should we start a new thread mentioning "avocardos, etc.?" OR
(B) Should we continue with the Ethiopia-Djibouti thread; but then here is no mention of Avocardoes on the "New Forum Posts" menu? OR
(C) Do (A) but cross-reference to (B) and vice versa.
(C) is more work to write, but covers both (A) and (B)
For ETHIOPIA-DJIBOUTI thread see https://www.railpage.com.au/f-p2190855.htm#2190855
as part of (C).
For PARENT THREAD (Africa -) see https://www.railpage.com.au/f-p2189234.htm#2189234
If we do (C) we can navigate the ET-DJ threads more easily.
Doing (C) avoids having "Orphan" threads that gradually "fall out of sight."
As for the loco, the Green Yellow Red stripes are the colours of the main stripes of the Ethiopian flag. There is also a yellow star with five points on a blue disk in the middle of that flag.
It is noted that the area of Ethiopia and NSW is about the same, while the population of ET is about 13 times that of NSW. This makes it hard to justify really big rail projects in NSW. At least we have Inland Rail.
