Syria: First steam train in 5 years departs Damascus for resort of Al-Zabadani

19 September 2017 22:59


A railway connection between the suburbs of Damascus and the resort city of Al-Zabadani was resumed, Monday, after a break of almost five years.

The steam-powered train dates back to 1896, and despite its appearance and sluggish speed the train has became a symbol of a return to normal life.

Al-Zabadani was under control of anti-government forces for several years and was finally recaptured by SAA and allied troops in April 2017.
