transport on a Mauritania banknote from 2011

On the 5,000 Ouguiya (worth $US 17) note there is an airport control tower and an iron ore train.  Iron ore represents about 40% of the country's exports and all of it is moved to port by rail.  The diesels are from EMD; on the banknote a SDL40-2, recently SD70ACS have been acquired, see earlier post.
