Egyptian Railways website

Mark Goldfinch, author of the excellent book Steel in the Sand, has an unofficial website on Egyptian Railways.

The Egyptian Railways Diwan is described as “a website and blog area intended to fill the need for a space on the internet dedicated to people to share their knowledge, expertise, news, photos and stories about Egyptian Railways”, and looks well worth keeping an eye on.

If you have any kind of interest in the history of Egypt’s railways – or in the country itself during the railway era – I’d strong recommend acquiring a copy of Steel in the Sand; see this reviewed published by Railway Gazette International.
