The opening of the Trans-persian Railway by reza shah

The Trans-persian Railway was a major railway building project started in 1927 and completed in 1938, under the direction of the Persian monarch, Reza Shah, and entirely with indigenous capital. It links the capital with the Persian Gulf and Caspian Sea. The railway connected Bandar Shah in the north and Bandar Shahpur in the south via Ahvaz, Ghom and capital. During the land reforms implemented by Mohammad Reza Shah in 1963 as part of the “White Revolution” the Trans-persian railway was extended to link Tehran to Mashhad, Tabriz, and Isfahan.
