Break of Gauge[edit]

Iran has the same gauge as some of its neighbours but a different gauge as others.

However, rail gauge is not the only compatibility issue.

Iran uses, IIRC, air brakes, and buffer-and-chain couplers have, IIRC, been replaced by automatic Janney couplers.

The former Soviet lines use a different coupler, and IIRC, air brakes.

Pakistan still uses buffer and chain, but the spacing of the buffers is wider than that originally used by Iran. Pakistan, IIRC, uses vacuum brakes.

As you can see, it gets complicated, and it is also difficult to be certain that your facts are straight.

You are right. I assume that when we talk about break-of-gauge, such compatibility issues are common. You way want to make this point in the break-of-gauge article as a general issue. Ekem 16:23, 9 February 2006 (UTC)

Missing lines[edit]

I notice that user: who started this article by using among other materials the russian source ommitted a line, probably because he could not identify the location Bad (=Badrud). Bad - Meibod is missing now. When I finish the table in de:wiki I come back for that. Kipala (talk) 17:55, 23 January 2012 (UTC)

Diesel is a strategic industry[edit]

If I knew what the following was supposed to mean

Diesel is a strategic industry, and by using this heavy oil as a fuel instead of gas for locomotives, the Islamic Republic of Iran has joined the 12 world countries which manufacture this type of engine.

I'd rewrite it as meaningful English, but I can't make head or tail of it. Diesel? Gas? Diesel traction is the commonest rail power source in the world, and almost no locomotives use gasoline. Can anybody clarify this? --Ef80 (talk) 19:44, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

New map?[edit]

Any chance of a more up to date map? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jzlcdh (talkcontribs) 19:55, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessaryily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request its removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

Yes check.svg Resolved This issue has been resolved, and I have therefore removed the tag, if not already done. No further action is necessary.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 20:42, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
