Artist's Description

This is the railway of Lawrence of Arabia fame. This Turkish line was attacked many times by British led Arab guerrilla groups during WW1. In the background are the remains of Hadiyah Station which was heavily garrisoned by the Turks. Much evidence still litters the ground; broken plates, bottles and old rifle cartridges for example. The train was toppled over to expose the tracks which were ripped up for scrap metal. This must have been quite an operation as the location is extremely remote, with no roads within many miles. The few Bedu tracks that get close are for 4 wheeled drive vehicles only, and camping out for a few days is a certainty.
