People connected with the Hejaz Railway and this website



Ghiath is the person who has contributed the most to the Nabataea Hejaz webiste. He is a Hejaz Railway enthusiast. His pictures can be identified by GH-R and a small steam train in the corner. Without Ghiath’s help this site would not be what it is today. Thanks Ghiath for sharing your photos, and for traveling throughout the Middle East getting us great shots!


Ghiath has a CD of photos that he is marketing in Syria. Sorry, but it is not for sale over the Internet. Since this picture was taken, Ghiath has left Syria due to the civil war.
