Old railway station, Jerusalem
Uploaded by David Dudy Palant

In the middle of the 19th century, the famous Jewish philanthropist Moses Montefiore and great german explorer and developer of Jerusalem, Dr. Conrad Schic, raised the idea to build a railway linking the Jaffa with Jerusalem. Josef Navon, the Jewish businessman, obtained the franchise from the Ottoman government for laying the railway. Due to financial difficulties, he sold the permit to a French company that builds the line. The line construction was completed in 1892. The line was constructed across the "donkeys' trail," an ancient route ascending from the seashore to Jerusalem through Nahal Sorek and the Valley of Rephaim. The station's inauguration took place on 26 September 1892 in front of the city's authorities, Jews, and Arabs. Eliezer Ben Yehuda, the reviver of the Hebrew language, present at the ceremony and trained the new Hebrew idiom for the train that literary transcripted as the steel's horse. The word Rakevet will be created later. The line was operated continuously until 1948 when traffic stopped due to the Arab–Israeli War. According to the 1949 Armistice Agreements, Israel Railways authorities were enabled to restart the service to Jerusalem. In 1959 after the opening of Highway 1the number of passengers using the line decreased, and the station was officially closed on 15 August 1998.
