Ashmun to Cairo via Barrage

 In Egypt Ticket

For the first one in the Egyptian series, you get two for the price of one. I bought the ticket from Ashmun station, and it’s a smart, clear example of a 2nd class half-fare single ticket, in this case from Ashmun to Cairo via Barrage. Then I turned over and – what a surprise! – discovered a cancelled 1st Class half-fare single ticket (of a different format) from Pont Limun to Kubba el-Hammamat. The reason this was cancelled was that this Cairo suburban line was converted into the northern part of Metro Line 1 back in 1987.
