Soon, the Jezreel valley train line will be rebuilt.
This line that joins Haifa to Beit Shean in the Jordan valley will be renovated , a multi million
dollars infrastructure project. It will follow the railway built by the Turkish authorities 100 years
ago. This line was part of the
Hijaz line linking Haifa to Damascus and to other parts of the
Ottoman Empire.
This train was famous for being slow and travelers laughed when they would jump out from the
train, pick up flowers, then jump back in the train!
The new train will have a speed of 160 km/h.
There are plans to link Beit Shean to Irbid in Jordan. This would allow export from Jordan via
the Haifa port

There are problem in the development of that project
Take a 4 wheeled snail with you in case of a problem!
