“Alight here for Serail, Meliyeh and Qasr el 3adl”
It’s interesting to note that these rails are here since 1894! midst of the Ottoman Empire...
and then in the middle of WWII (during which Lebanon became independent) the allies (mainly Australians) expanded the coastal railway (joining Homs, Tripoli to Haifa). Initially the cement industry had a major role in pushing forwards with the Trains as a mean for merchandise transportation (mar mikhael/port to Chekka)
The “public” was always the second class benefactor!
