The Amman to Damascus Trip

It is possible to take the Hejaz Railway from the Mahatta station in Amman to the city of Damascus. This is a trip that all old train enthusiasts will want to take. However, if you cannot afford to fly to Amman and take the trip, these pictures will have to suffice. Special thanks to Peter Herrett who took the trip in the fall of 2003.
