Steam locomotives must be filled with water a number of times during journey, depending on the route. The fireman is in charge of filling water from special faucets, installed along the way near available water sources. On the Jaffa-Jerusalem line there was no lack of water, but on other lines in more arid areas tanks with faucets stood, which were filled with water brought by special trains.

Sign No. 74 in a series of signs placed on or around lighting poles, including the history of the old railway line to Jerusalem, along which its route extends the HaMesila (Railway) Park.

In the next picture taken that day you can see the old railway track that became a pedestrian track, a bike path next to it, and the sign that surrounds one of the lighting poles Click for a larger image
