Hejaz Railway Train Station
al-'Ula, Saudi Arabia
Construction on the Hejaz Railway connecting Damascus to Medina started in 1900 under the Ottoman Sultan Abdul Hamid II. The al-'Ula station was toward the end of the line.  It was abandoned when the line stopped working in 1920. The station house, fortifications, windmill, and water tower are still on the site, as are cars of derelict trains.
