The old Train station from the Ottoman                         Period was lately renovated and became one of the         attraction of the Capital City of the Negev

          BEER SHEVA

 

 

 

 

The dream of the Mayor of Be’er Sheva, Rubik Danilovich, was to find out where that old 70414 train had gone and bring it back to his city. Despite numerous challenges and with the help of Britain he was finally able to repatriate a copy of the legendary train to the delight of the oldtimers who remember with nostalgia the sound of the train and its whistle. It was called PR, “Palestine Railways.”

A well known song relates the story of this legendary Train.
