Passenger Rail in Israel

At the time of our trip to Israel I was a PhD student at the University of Illinois with a research focus on passenger rail transportation. It seemed appropriate that during our trip to Israel I should explore their transit systems whenever possible. So, on our day off, while my mother was at the National Museum of Israel, I took the Israel Railways train from Jerusalem back up to Tel Aviv and Haifa, and returned the same day.
