One hundred later the train T.E. Lawrence blew is there

“One of the trains that T.E. Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia) blew up on the Hejaz Railway in 1917. It’s still there in the middle of the desert a hundred years on” – 16 March 2018 by Levison Wood‏

  1. Glad you liked the photos. I just find it amazing to see the destroyed train is still there in the desert.

  2. Guess it wasn't cost effective to either recover it for repair or recovery it for the metal salvage. Goes to show how a hot, dry environment will preserve things. Good find!

  3. Wow - could be a great tourist attraction if righted and restored a little?
