Hafirah Station (N24° 35.300’ E39° 21.600’)

This site comprises a two storey blockhouse for twenty-five soldiers, a barrack block housing about a hundred soldiers and a single water tower (most often you see a pair of water towers on a single building). Each is constructed from black basalt. You will see a metal construction in the photograph of the water tower (left of the tower). This construction is made from railway track. It is quite common to find parts of the railway line being adapted for other purposes and some of it from the time the railway was being used including telegraph poles Contribution by Steve Turpin
