מסילת הרכבת ברוחב של 60 ס"מ (טראזינה) נסללה בשנת 1918 בידי הבריטים כדי להעביר תחמושת לקו החזית באזור קיבוץ גליל ים.
לאחר המלחמה, עד שנת 1927, שימשו קרוניות הרכבת האלה להעברת מטענים לתחנת רכבת ביפו.

A 60 centimeter gauge track (Draisine) laid by the British in 1918 for transportation of ammunition to the front line in the region of Kibbutz Glil Yam. Following the war, until 1927, it was used for cargo transportation to Jaffa train station.
