From across this empty lot in Beer Sheva you can get an unobstructed photo of the new/old Train Yard and the 99-year-old train station, albeit from the back.
The grand opening of this new cultural venue will be in November, but last week we got in on one of the several days of practice run.
You already saw pictures of the young lady in fancy period costume who was welcoming the visitors.
An ensemble of musicians on oud, drum, and violin bowed in the Oriental style added to the old Ottoman Turkish ambiance in the train compound.
In coming posts I'll show you the beautiful old steam locomotive and all.
If you want a sneak preview, please enlarge the sign and have a read.
