El-Boussili to Damanhur

 In Egypt, Egypt Ticket

El-Boussili (alternatively spelt Busili, al-Bousili and other variants) is country junction station in the north of Egypt’s Nile Delta close to the Mediterranean coast. To the west the line runs into Alexandria, although most trains stop at M where passengers have to transfer to the frequent Alexandria Metro trains running between the city and Abu Qir. To the east, the line splits with the northern branch following the coast and running to Rashid (Rosetta) while the southern branch runs inland to Mutubis and then around to Disuq and Damanhur.

I bought this ticket on 10th March 1995. It’s a rather plain card and design but I remember this Spring visit and this part of the Delta with some affection.


I help people and businesses organise their marketing, which saves time and stress. As part of this I created a straightforward way to help people develop anecdotes, which are the building blocks to confidence and assertiveness in groups of people. I help people strengthen their small-talk for social situations such as networking events and elsewhere. Stories about places are a great way to begin. Get in touch if want to start telling great stories.
