Travelling in Israel--Compilation

Postby John_Perkowski » Mon Jul 11, 2016 1:06 pm

I've travelled in Israel by rail both in 2015 and 2016. I'll post a bunch of pictures by way of links to flickr soon.

Rail travel in Israel is basic, but clean and comfortable. They use European rolling stock, both single and bi-level. Diesel is the primary power, especially on between Haifa, Tel Aviv, and Jerusalem. In addition, travel between Jerusalem and Modi'in is Diesel powered.

There's wi-fi. It's great in the stations, not always great on the road, but it's there :)

I've not encountered food service aboard, but almost every station has some form of fast food (for them, for Americans it's a notch or two above... one time, I got an orange juice, I watched the juice machine squeeze my oranges!).

Photos to follow... lots of photos.
