Can anyone on the forum tell me if Sudan's Gezira Light Railway, built to carry cotton to Marangan and Qurashi is still used?

It was working in 1987, but I haven't seen any references to it since then.

sorry for the late reply

The railway system in Sudan had completely collapsed during the 80's and especially the 90's due to the southern Sudanese civil war. lack of finance to maintain was a major factor because most of the money was spent on war. little of the system remained operational.

In terms of the gezira railway, It is still being used but on a limited scale. no where near the capacity it used to handle a few decades ago. however, it is approved to be rehabilitated as part of the whole railway system of the country.
