Dimona Railway stationThis station was opened in 2005 as was the branch line from Beer Sheva. The line has some importance for freight, but in 2009, Dimona was the least busy station in the whole Israeli network in terms of passenger boardings. The station is somewhat outside town, which might also explain the relatively low passenger numbers. Israel Railways serves the town roughly three times per day and direction.
