The foundation started its work on the launch of the locomotive after the liberation of Kudisa and al-Hama districts to the west of the capital.
According to Husayn Muhammad, 150 residents of the city for the first time in the last 5 years were able to travel 15 kilometers from Damascus to the station of al-Hama.
In the future it is planned to extend the route of the train all the way to the city of ez-Zabadani and Lebanon.
The historic train has only 3 carriages with wooden benches, which are loved by many generations of Syrians.
The gardens of al-Rabwah, the settlement of al-Hama and the oasis of al-Khadra, through which the locomotive passes, are the traditional places of recreation for the citizens of the capital, where they like to go on a picnic.
The whistle of the locomotive, which was heard by the Syrians after many years has become a symbol pointing to the return of civilian life to the country. Children came running outside to greet their old friend as the train made the journey to its destination.
