The Hejaz Railway (also spelled Hedjaz) was a 1050mm gauge railway originally built to transport pilgrims from the city of Damascus in Syria to the city of Madina in Saudi Arabia. It was completed in 1908, but was severely damaged during the First World War (1914-1918) by Lawrence of Arabia and the Arab Revolt. Parts of the Hejaz Railway survived and some of the sections are still functioning today. We are indebted to the many Nabataea.net readers who have contributed to this site especially Ghiath who has provided us with many photographs. His photographs all have a small steam engine in one corner and GH-R on the other. All photographs are copyrighted, and the property of their perspective owners. Please do not copy them without the permission of their owners.

Menu Guide: Pages have been created for the various stations, blockhouses and stops along the Hejaz Railway. If you have any pictures, stories or other information that may be of interest to our readers, please contact us. The menus on this page are always up to date. Menus on subsequent pages may need updating, so if you are puzzled over the menus please return to this page.

Note: There are over 170 web pages on this site, with over 1000 photographs, taken between 1895 and 2007
