Hejaz Railway Museum
Refurbished terminal station of the Hejaz Railway in downtown Madinah.
The Hejaz Railway Museum (Arabic ) in Medina is a railway museum that was opened in 2006. It is on the grounds of the restored historic Ottoman railway station at Medina, locally called ? "Istasy?n" (Hejazi pronunciation: [e?stas'jo?:n, ?stas'jo?:n]), including a stretch of the historic track and a train shed with originally four tracks. There are several engines and pieces of rolling stock on display, some of which has been transported to the museum from other places along the historic Hejaz railway line. At least one engine has been restored enough to be driveable on the museum tracks. It is, along with the old train station at Mada'in Saleh, one of two museums in Saudi Arabia dedicated to the Hejaz railway.
- A list of the eleven locomotives of the Hejaz railway that have survived including six at Medina is cited here, discussing the origin of some. Most of the information is taken from the German book "Die Hedschas-Bahn - Eine Deutsche Eisenbahn in der Wüste", by Dieter Noll/Benno Bickel/Ahmad v. Denffer, DGEG, 1995.
