On the sign:
לאורך מסילת יפו-ירושלים המקורית נבנו מספר גשרים גדולים, במקור מרביתם היו עשויים פלדה וסופקו על ידי חברת ’אייפל’ (הידועה ממגדל אייפל). במהלך מלחמת העולם הראשונה נהרסו כל הגשרים המקוריים והצבא הבריטי נאלץ להקים גשרים זמניים מעץ, שהוחלפו בהמשך בגשרים קבועים.

على طول السكة الحديدية يافا - القدس الأصلية بنيت العديد من الجسور الكبيرة . في الأصل بنيت معظمها من الفولاذ الذي زودته شركة " إيفل " (المعروفة من برج ايفل) . خلال الحرب العالمية الأولى دمرت جميع الجسور الأصلية مما جسور مؤقتة من الخشب ، وتم اضطر الجيش البريطاني استبدالها لاحقا بجسور ثابتة

A number of large bridges were built along the Jaffa-Jerusalem line. Some of them were onginally made of iron and were manufactured by the firm of Eiffel (of Eiffel Tower fame). During World War I most of the original bridges were destroyed and the British Army had to build temporary wooden bridges, which were replaced over time with more permanent structures.

מסוט, הנקרא לפעמים גם מפלג, הוא מעין צומת של מסילות רכבת הנפגשות או מתפצלות זו מזו, למרות שמרבית מסילות הרכבת כיום מורכבות על אדני בטון דרוך, במסוטים עדין עושים שימוש באדני עץ.

المحولة ، هي مفترق للسكك الحديدية التي تلتقي فيه او تتفرع منه الواحدة عن الأخرى . بالرغم من ان معظم السكك الحديدية اليوم مركبة على عوارض من الباطون المضغوط ، لكن في الحوالات ما زالت تستخدم العوارض الخشبية .

A switch, sometimes also called a turnout, is the junction between simple railway tracks, where two lines converge or divide. Despite most tracks today having pre-stressed concrete ties (sleepers), turnouts are usually still made with wooden ties.
