Well, it's done. The new railway is open starting from tonight. Hopefully, on the desto screens they have implemented "Beer Sheva via Rishon Letzion" or something like that to prevent confusion. New map.

But in the official site I continue to see strange prices - B_Sheva-Netivot - 40 NIS, B-Sheva-Tel_Aviv - 31 NIS

I don't even know anymore... It's not IR's fault BTW. The transportation ministry controls prices.

Maybe they're calculating BeerSheva-Netivot via Tel Aviv?

Anyway, when is Ofakim station opening?

Bad news, the economy ministry banned working on infrastructure on Shabbat/Saturday. That means, the railway to Jlem might be delayed by 2 years and electrification also if IR doesn't do something.

Normally, as a religious person, I would've supported this, but this is quite a sudden choice that Deri made, making non Jews lose their jobs, and that it leaves soldiers who are stranded nowhere in danger, because they won't have trains after Shabbat, because the infrastructure won't be ready. This is a bad choice, and it involves life threatening situations.

1. It wasn't a complete ban- the "ban" meant that the approval of the relevant minister (minister of transportation in IR's case) was required in order to work on Satuarday.
2. Since IR didn't actually get the official papers from the ministry of economy, Israel's high court postponed the ban for now.

Yeah, but politics is really fickle, and I don't want to dig into it to soon.

Many tanks. It is not visible on your pictures but I love the way old hedjaz railway structures have been integrated in the surroundings of this station.

Photos of Hauma Terminal. Bloody massive underground building. Has big halls, platforms, entrance with an open roof and some weird stuff, like street lights in the interior. Didn't notice how big it was until now.

I don't know. They're not my photos, and I'm not going to spend extra time resizing them. Zooming out works.

Does anyone know anything about the line that China recently said they will finance from Ashdod (or Ashquelon) to Eilat? Is this supposed to be a high speed rail line and why am I not seeing this in the map of Israel Railways future plans?

It is in the map. And yes, it is a High speed line. Except that it's from Beer Sheva to Eilat, so freight trains would go from Beer Sheva to Ashdod on existing lines.

Yeah. Apparently, the connection to the Modiin branch itself will be done by 2019.
