Transportation > Trains
The first railway road was made in Egypt on the 12th of July 1851, and started working after the Suez Canal opening ceremonies in 1854, during the ruling period of khedive Ismail Basha and under the supervision of the English engineer Robert Stevenson, the son of the famous train inventor George Stevenson.

The railway network measures approx 6700 km, 4872 km of them are non stop, while the rest are stations and block points.

The railway network joins the whole Delta, it also connects most of the inhibited and economic points like harbors on both the Mediterranean and the Red Seas, together with all the cities in a huge network of extended modern railway roads, all equipped to operate all types of high speed trains.
