HSH (Hekurudha Shqipëtare, Albanian Railways) diesel locomotive T669 1059 stands at the head of the 13:08 train from Pogradec to Tiranë. The disused works at Pogradec can be seen in the background.

This photograph was taken from the 13:08 train from Pogradec to Tiranë, whilst travelling over the viaduct at Fushtriza, which is the highest and longest in Albania. Note the lack of parapet on the viaduct, and also the line-up of photographers on the road.

This is the station and signalbox at Shkozet (just outside Durrës), and must be a strong candidate for the most tasteless colour scheme on a railway structure anywhere in the world. The green paint has been over-sprayed onto the windows of the signalbox operating room.
