Itinerary for 28 March 2022: PTG bus from Hotel King Solomon in Netanya to Bnei Brak station; then PTG charter train via Tel Aviv-University - Tel Aviv-HaHagana - Ashdod (reverse) - Ashdod Port (reverse) - Ashdod Yard - Ashdod - Ashkelon - “Heletz” freight only line (photo stop) - Be'er Sheva-North/University - Ramat Hovav (freight line; reverse) - Be'er Sheva-North/University. Then by service trains via Netivot to Lod and return to Be'er Sheva-Center. Walk to the Hotel Leonardo Negev in Be'er Sheva. The charter train should have run directly via Lod to Ashdod Port, but the previous day's cable cutting incident south of Lod was still affecting services so we were diverted via Tel Aviv, losing two freight-only curves in the process.
