Remarks & Notes 
I'd walk a mile for a camel

The exit from Ghinda is marked by a sharply curved, steeply graded viaduct, over which the little 0-4-4-0T's need all their strength to haul a few freight cars.

The bemused camel driver was quite happy to be paid a dollar to take a break while his beasts looked on, unimpressed with the steam trains or the foreigners who were there to enjoy them.
