In the morning after having breakfast, we will visit Shadravan Bridge and then begin our rail car (Derezine) trip at Andimeshk Station. A rail car is a small rail vehicle that can carry up to 10 passengers at one time. It allows for a panoramic view while it is moving and will provide passengers with a completely different experience to what they have had before. Our first visit is to Dokooheh Station which was one of the most important garrisons during the Iran/Iraq war. Slowly we will move from Plains of Khuzestan towards the Zagros Mountains in the east.
After passing Gol Mahak Station, we will reach Balarood where we will visit some buildings and structures which tells the story of the early years of constructing the railway. On our way to the Zagros Mountains, we will visit two significant bridges named Dam Dam and Shahbazan, both of which are unique technically and aesthetically.
This is a unique opportunity for those who are interested in taking nature pictures. After this, slowly the wonderful and great rocky walls of Zagros will reveal themselves as we prepare to go through several and sometimes long tunnels. Multiple tunnels is one of the unique features of the railway in this area. Tunnels will emerge one after another and will provide a thrilling rush as we travel through the dark.
Passing through these tunnels by rail car is an opportunity to experience a different way of traveling on railways. Afterwards we will visit a bridge that had historical significance during the Iran/Iraq war. Along the way, the Dez River will accompany as we continue to see the beautiful sight of the mountains. Before entering Tang Haft Station, we will visit some other railway bridges and also some tracks that were used at the beginning of the construction of the railway system. We will say goodbye to the rail car at Keshvar Station and after taking a rest for a while, we will get ready for our trip back to Tehran.
