Remarks & Notes 
Shadow Warrior - Look twice!
Only in the shadow you can see what the kid is holding in his hand: pointing his gun towards the photographer! A strange feeling in a back then peaceful country. Believe it or not, in 2017, despite the civil war, on Fridays they ran steam charter trains from El Halme through the gorge towards Lebanon!

The loco was built in 1894 by the Swiss company SLM under works number 845. In 2007 it weared the wrong builder's plates 855.
