Steam Train on Aquaduct bridge

A steam-hauled excursion train to Qatrana (for Petra) steams across Ing. Meissner Pasha's

Steam Train on Hedjaz RailwaySteam Train on Hedjaz Railway near Maan

The above two pictures were taken in the TransJordan in 1946 - 1947. Mike Morton was on a geological expedition to the Transjordan and was based in Ma'an at the time. He took the photographs whilst working near the Hejaz railway. His work in the field would have taken him to areas adjoining the line, and he may have taken the shots as a train went thundering past! Special thanks to Quentin Morton for submitting these photos, plus snippits from his father's letter written while he was travelling from Ma'an to Amman .

"I'm writing this letter from a train. As the train stops for 30 minutes at each station, it should be quite a long letter by the time I reach Amman. I left Ma'an at eight this morning at this, the first station, at 8.55. It's a strange train, goods and passengers, and runs on a narrow 3'6" gauge. This is the railway that Lawrence tried to blow up. Damn, I think it's starting again."

"It's now 9:30 and we've stopped again. Actually, I'm travelling in a first class compartment on a second class ticket. Looking at the train, I could only see II and III class coaches, and as there is only one first class compartment, it's not surprising that I made the mistake. However, the guard was very nice and let me stay here without paying. Not that it really matters, as the Company pay all my expenses?"
