After a few of us had made an early morning visit to the archaeological site at Petra our coach brought us back to Ma'an, where we visited the old loco depot and the railway's wagon works - located here even though Ma'an is 55 km north of the normal limit of train operations. South of here, as far as the "junction" with the former Medina line, the track is owned by the Jordan Hejaz Railway but leased to the Aqaba Railway Corporation (ARC). Beyond the junction, as far as the depot this side of Aqaba port, the track is owned by ARC.
