Built in the turn of the twentieth century, the Hejaz Railway was initially mocked in Europe as a wildly improbable scheme. Still used partially in Syria and Israel, the railway was constructed at colossal cost. This book provides details about the construction of this project based on British documents from a technical and cultural point of view.
