I think whether or not it's the same station will depend on factors like each passenger's fondness for or aversion to walking, whether or not the passenger has luggage, etc. Hopefully, there would be an indoor/underground/covered connection for pedestrians.

so all trains will terminate in Atlit? Is that because there's no spare capacity to through-route to Gush Dan?

I'm guessing Valley line is that expensive due to land expropriation costs. Does someone know the chronology of its construction?

Probably that, in addition to the fact that the coastal railway will be electrified well before the valley line. The planned lines and train frequencies (each single line represents 1 train per hour per direction) in 2020 can be seen in the following map- the valley railway is the dark-red line to the top-right, Karmiel-Jerusalem is in pink. The names of the stations on the valley railway are, from right to left:
-Beit Shean
-Afula
-Kfar Baruch
-Kfar Yehoshua
-Lev HaMifratz East
-Haifa Center HaShmona
-Haifa Bat Galim
-Haifa Hof HaCarmel
-Atlit

Trains can't go south to Dan probably because of capacity issues and the fact that you're basically going in 2 different directions, making the coaches more worth it than trains. That will change once they get the Iron railway done, but that's not happening until a bunch of other projects are complete.

I wonder if through-ticketing from Afula to Nahariya will contemplate changing at Lev Hamifratz or at Haifa-8.

The Iron railway will be along route 65 from Hadera to Afula, correct?

Would you happen to have a complete list of all of the proposed projects, and their priority/timeframe?

Well, in order for the Iron railway to even exist, you have to upgrade the inland eastern railway where it branches off first. That should be a priority, but for now, the next railway to be built would be the Modiin-Rishon line. (It branches off Hadera east).

I don't have a list of the project's details, but the MoT has set up the funds for the Modiin railway construction, and the eastern line isn't part of this.

What rolling stock will the valley line use? With so few stations (some at town outskirts, to boot) I imagine that capacity per train set does not need to be really huge.

It's just a map showing IR's lines and train frequencies in 2020, passengers will obviously get a different map.

What is the point of cut and cover tunnel, if it is not a metro?

Why not just have few times cheaper excavation?

A new neighbourhood will be built pretty close to the new line, so the tracks were built inside a cut and cover tunnel preemptively.

As a part of the works to add a Southern terminal to Hashalom train station in Tel-Aviv, the base of the new terminal was put in place during the weekend:

The new Hadera-Lod railway will bypass the Greater Tel Aviv region

http://www.globes.co.il/en/article-i...ine-1001152606

Fair use excerpt:

"Israel Railways has begun planning a new north-south line, which will bypass the Greater Tel Aviv area, "Yediot Ahronot" reports. The new line from Hadera to Lod will link northern and southern Israel in terms of trains without entering Tel Aviv, just as Road 6 does for the country's highway system."
