An Iranian goods train carrying tonnes of agricultural products chugged into a western Afghan province on December 10, 2020, as the two countries marked the opening of their first shared railway network. The 225-kilometer line connects the eastern Iranian city of Khaf to the western Afghan city of Herat, providing a crucial transport link to landlocked Afghanistan, which is ravaged by several decades of war. The train route so far links the Iranian city of Khaf with the Afghan town of Rozanak about 150 kilometers away but is scheduled to be expanded to reach Herat, Afghanistan`s third-largest city.
