  • Baghdad's grand station operates a single line to Basra

    (29 Apr 2016) LEAD IN: Baghdad's central rail station was known as the jewel of the city, a central hub that connected the capital with most of the Iraqi provinces. Despite its renovation in 2006, the permanent violence that swept the country since the US invasion in 2003, forced the closure of all lines except the one to Basra. STORY-LINE: Baghdad's central station used to be the hub of a rail network, connecting the capital with cities around the country, from northern al Qaim to Basra in the south. It was considered the "Jewel of Baghdad" for daily travellers. The 1914 green steam train outside the station is a symbol of Iraq's railway past glories.

    English/Nat After a closure of about 10 years, the Iraq Museum has opened its doors to the public, with an exhibition displaying over 10-thousand ancient artefacts. The relics range from simple farming tools used around 6-thousand B-C, to colossal winged-bull statues that the Assyrians placed at their city gates to instil fear in enemies. The treasures were removed for safekeeping shortly before the outbreak of the 1991 Gulf War in which a U-S-led military mission ejected Iraqi troops from Kuwait. The museum had been closed ever since. Baghdad unveiled its national treasures on Saturday, when it reopened the Iraq Museum after a ten-year period of closure.

We have launched this train to ease congestions, traffic jams in the Baghdad streets and consequently the arrival of a passenger by train is faster than by car to and from the centre of Baghdad." 15. Various of traffic jams STORYLINE Iraqi Railways on Wednesday launched for the first time, a train service in Baghdad as security improves across the Iraqi capital. The train's route runs between Baghdad's northern neighbourhood of Kazimiyah and the southern district of Yousifiyah, and serves many areas in the capital, a senior Iraqi official said. Abdul-Ameer Hamoud, Director of Central Transport said that the train trip would ease traffic jams in the capital. Passengers can get to and from the centre of Baghdad faster than travelling by car, he said. The price for a train ticket was 1000 Iraqi dinar (80 cents) Hamoud said. In September a private luxury train that used to belong to former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein - equipped with chandeliers and Italian-made curtains, was returned to public service to help ease a train shortage. Iraq has suffered a train shortage due to years of UN economic sanctions and looting following the US-led invasion.

(29 Apr 2016) LEAD IN: Baghdad's central rail station was known as the jewel of the city, a central hub that connected the capital with most of the Iraqi provinces. Despite its renovation in 2006, the permanent violence that swept the country since the US invasion in 2003, forced the closure of all lines except the one to Basra. STORY-LINE: Baghdad's central station used to be the hub of a rail network, connecting the capital with cities around the country, from northern al Qaim to Basra in the south. It was considered the "Jewel of Baghdad" for daily travellers. The 1914 green steam train outside the station is a symbol of Iraq's railway past glories. It was one of the first engines in the country, with a speed of 24 miles per hour (38.6 kilometres per hour) and served the passengers for 32 years. In 1916 the first railway administration was formed under British military control when Britain occupied Iraq. And in 1936, the railways' ownership moved to the Iraqi government and became known as the Iraqi Republic Railway. After the 2003 US-led invasion, thieves looted the station. Renovations began in 2004 and were completed two years later. But the decline couldn't be stopped. Now the station operates one single daily train from Baghdad to the southern province of Basra 550 kilometres (311 miles) south of Baghdad. And it's not only militant attacks that threaten this rail line. The station assistant director Ali Abdel-Hussein Wadi complains that the train is often targeted by vandals who smash the windows with stones, forcing him to regular and expensive replacements. But for Wadi, the obvious factor that caused the closing of the national rail is the militant violence that swept the country since the US invasion. "Regrettably after 2003 and due to terrorist acts, a number of railway lines had to be halted. Baghdad-Basra is the only railway line which operates,'' Wadi says. Security is as tight as possible with sniffer-dogs looking for explosives in the passengers' luggage and police checking passengers heading to the train one by one. Despite the risks of travelling to Basra by train, the line has customers. The ticket prices are a draw, ranging from 10,000 Iraqi dinars (8.43 US dollars) to 35,000 (29.5 US dollars). ''I prefer to travel by train because it's cheap, comfortable and relatively safe, and train staffers provide us with good service. I hope to arrive in Basra safely," says passenger Seif Salam. Train driver Saad Mohammed al-Tamimi remembers better days, when the network was busy. ''Previously, it was safe, there were so many trains and a lot of passengers. Before, there were two trains daily for Mosul, Kirkuk and other western provinces. But now all of these lines had to be halted because of Daesh (IS) and extremists,'' he says. Optimistically, Iraqi Railways Company has recently purchased 12 Diesel train sets from China with speed up to 120 kilometres (74.5 miles) per hour at a cost of 137 million US dollars.

Wide of train preparing to move with UPSOUND of horn 13. Close of train driver holding communications device 14. Various of train leaving station STORYLINE: After four years without service, the first train departed from Baghdad to Basra on Sunday. The recommencement of the service to Basra coincides with the British handover of security to Iraqi authorities in the region. AP Television filmed the first passengers boarding the train in Baghdad's Allawi al-Hilla neighbourhood. Armed security officials were also present for the first journey between the two cities in four years. Abdul-Karim Jabir, a railway station warden said, "the first train starts its trip to Basra after a four year-halt. The train service recommences again thanks to the efforts of local people and the efforts of the company." The service was halted in the months that followed the removal of Saddam Hussein from power 2003, due to an increased number of Iraqi and foreign trains coming under attack. Some say Britain's weekend handover of Basra province will have a limited effect on security in Iraq's biggest oil region because rival Shiite warlords and local officials have been wielding the real power in the area. Stability in Basra and southern Iraq is key not only to security, but also to whether the all-important oil industry will grow and attract vital international investment. The region contains most of Iraq's proven oil reserves. If bloody fighting between Shiite factions returns, it will be hard to persuade companies to invest. British officials have said they will retain the ability to help Iraqi troops quickly if widespread violence erupts, but they are also reducing the number of troops in the country from 4,500 to 2,000 by spring. In the months soon after Hussein was toppled, there were about 40,000 British troops in Iraq.

The museum had been closed ever since. Baghdad unveiled its national treasures on Saturday, when it reopened the Iraq Museum after a ten-year period of closure. The Iraqi government has been discussing reopening the museum for the last two years, saying the risk of airstrikes against Iraq had lessened. On Saturday the museum's doors were finally reopened, though U-N sanctions still imposed on the country meant the cost of its reopening had to be kept to minimum. SOUNDBITE: (English) \"The UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) representative came on several occasions in the past and there was some cooperation but of course it is not enough. (It is) thanks to the Iraqis themselves and to Iraq money that they assemble such wonderful world class museum. But I would like to assure you that the U-N family would like to help more.\" SUPER CAPTION: Francois Dubois, United Nations Development Programme (U-N-D-P) Representative to Iraq Iraq's economy has been crippled by trade sanctions imposed to punish Iraq for its invasion of Kuwait. Sanctions are still in place because Iraq has failed to convince the U-N that is has surrendered its weapons of mass destruction. Iraqi government officials touring the museum denounced the U-S led sanctions, saying they contrasted starkly with Iraq's sophisticated cultural heritage. SOUNDBITE: (English) \"When you have this new look of this museum you can compare between our civilization and the uncivilized aggression on the Americans against our people. So in my opinion this is the meaning of the reopening of this museum U-S aggression against our people.\" SUPER CAPTION: Humam Abdulkhaleq, Iraq's Information Minister Visitors on the museum's opening day were first ushered into the prehistoric hall where implements used during the Neolithic age, such as hammers, grinding stones and sickle-blades, were on display. Curators said the implements were some of the world's earliest farming tools. Several halls brimmed with Mesopotamian clay figurines, including those of the mother goddess, the symbol of fertility and reproduction. Relics of the Sumerian civilisation of southern Iraq, over whose ethnic and linguistic roots scientists are still puzzling, occupy the heart of the museum. Pieces include clay tablets with cuneiform writing that played the role of today's books, and cylinder seals the Sumerians used as signatures and passed on to ancient nations that ruled Iraq and the Middle East after them. Some 200-thousand other pieces remain tucked away in warehouses in Baghdad. And relics are still being discovered. Over the next few months the Antiquities Department of the museum hope to add some 10-thousand more objects to the current collection.
