Egypt's railway system has over 5,000km of track, connecting almost every major city and town. Timetables are generally reliable, although the system itself is in need of some modernisation.
First-class rail travel is either by wagon-lit, which has air-conditioning, hot and cold running water in each sleeper compartment and a full meal service; or by first-class seated accommodation.
Second-class travel is divided into two sub-sections: with or without air-conditioning.
Third-class travel is extremely basic, very cheap and can be crowded.
