Israel Railways

Israel Railways (Hebrew: רַכֶּבֶת יִשְׂרָאֵל, Rakevet Yisra'el) is the state-owned principal railway company responsible for all inter-city, commuter, and freight rail transport in Israel. All its lines are standard gauge. The network is centered in Israel's densely populated coastal plain, from which lines radiate out in many directions. Unlike road vehicles and city trams, Israeli railway trains run on the left hand tracks.

Famous quotes containing the words railways and/or israel:

    There is nothing in machinery, there is nothing in embankments and railways and iron bridges and engineering devices to oblige them to be ugly. Ugliness is the measure of imperfection.
    —H.G. (Herbert George)

    Let Israel hope in the Lord, for with the Lord there is mercy,
    And with him is plenteous redemption. And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.
    Bible: Hebrew Psalm CXXX (l. CXXX, 7–8)
