The Hejaz Railway was a 1050mm narrow gauge railway originally built to transport pilgrims from the city of Damascus through Syria to Madina in Saudi Arabia, through the Hejaz region of Saudi Arabia and was one of the principle railroads of the Ottoman Empire. Small stations of uniform design were built along the railway from Tabuk until Madain Saleh (Al-Hijr) with the photographs below of one such station about 50 kilometres north of Madain Saleh
