Remarks & Notes 
In Eritrea, a few Russian Ural 375-D trucks that have been built in the Soviet Union in the 60s and 70s have been converted to run on rail wheels. They have been used in the Eritrean railway reconstruction after the war with Ethiopia. On the back side of the Eritrean 10 Nakfa banknote, one of the Ural rail trucks is shown crossing the Moncullo viaduct with a freight train. These funny vehicles are still in service today for the line maintenance and to transport various goods. These 4-wheel rail trucks are mounted on a FIAT "Littorina" railcar bogie. One of the Urals is seen here in the Nefasit station with a work train.

Pictures of things often unseen in the world of railroading. Interesting equipment, operations, and people that help the railroad go around.
Prototype for everything . . .

Do you ever get the feeling as a model railroader, that you just might be creating something not "prototypical?" Same here.
