Locomotives of the Hejaz Railway
The Hejaz Railway was built in the early 1900s between Damascus and Medina in the then Ottoman Empire. In modern times, only small portions of the railway survive. Many locomotives are derelict. In 2003, a team of retired Indian Railway staff from SBC (Bangalore) and UBL (Hubli) went to Medina in Saudi Arabia and worked on restoring one of the locomotives, using parts from the others. These pictures were sent by Mr A Abdul Wajeed, retired locomotive driver of SBC. Pictures were forwarded to IRFCA by Kunal Doddanavar of Bangalore, in Dec. 2008.
