Hey, I'm back, this time with my Jaffa Railway Station. It was built in the 1890s in Tel Aviv, Israel, as station of the Jaffa-Jerusalem railway, a railway line between Jaffa (the oldest part of Tel Aviv) and Jerusalem.
It was closed in 1948 and became really neglected and abandoned until 2004, when they started a restoration project which was completed in 2009.

Some weeks ago, I visited Israel. When I decided to visit the Israeli defense forces museum (a museum about the Israeli army which is located near the railway station), I saw this station and looked a bit around it after spending about 2 hours in the museum (TAAAAAANKS YAY) and thought "I must built this some day." Well, today me and Phil (a really nice guy and good builder on my server) built it and I'm pretty proud of it - it is probably the first Jaffa railway station in minecraft!

Wow! This is really a cool build and a nice replica of the actual Jaffa railway! It would be nice if you would upload some houses from the old city of Jaffa because their design is beautiful.
well, thanks. id love to, but I dont have a lot of pictures and plans of jaffa. next year i will visit israel again so maybe i can build it after that :D

"sorry but.... this is a total fail." I got a flasback sorry xD

No I like it, only that wagon is quit out of its dimensions, its too wide, the rails aren't made on scale.

well, i didnt really want to make a new waggon because that waggon was put some years ago when that railway station was rebuilt to a restaurant.

p.s.: about that total fail - sorry for that. but you really improved greatly.
