rail transportation area ? Things I should not miss ?

Also, to those who live there or know the area, an important question :
is it safe, or dangerous, to take trains, railways, or metro pictures over
there ? Do I risk to get arrested, my camera seized, my pictures erased
or whatever if I'm caught taking pictures of transportation systems ? If so,
is there may be a way to request a formal authorization ? Tourist guides
about Iran are full of warnings about taking pictures of 'forbidden' sites,
but never mention whether transportation systems are part of the forbidden
list...

Tia,

Marc.
No worries mate, I was there 3 years ago and it things were rather easy-going, I was taking pictures of train, metro and bus stations and no one minded it. Iranians are friendly and if it happens that taking pictures is foribedden somewhere tell will tell you it.

OK guys, thanks to all who replied. It's true that I will be there with a guide
most of the time - I suppose he will avoid me most of the mistakes. Geez,
still 4 months to go, I just can't wait : all the way from Brussels to Tehran
by rail, what a dream for a train enthusiast ! If I get back with nice pictures,
you sure will see them here !

Well, it's not that difficult, from Brussels to Istanbul, various routes can be
used, and then from Istanbul to Teheran on the weekly Trans-Asia-Express.
In the past you could also have done it through Moscow, but the war between Armenia and Azerbaijan has severed the route.
If you like long haul rail travel, be sure to have a look at the excellent web site www.seat61.com .

sarbaze tabarestan are you sure those pics have been taken in Tajrish? Because a friend of mine have been to Tajrish last week and he told me that no activity could be seen from the surface.
btw Tajrish is higher than Mirdamad. What is the gradient of the steepest stretch of the new section?

It's funny that the pictures come from the 'Fars' news agency. Fars sounds awfully similar to 'farce' - and I'm quite sure the news agency wouldn't want to be associated with that.
