Denebola, No Middle Eastern country has an extensive railway network and there are few international services. Most railway lines in the region were built primarily for strategic or economic reasons, and many are either no longer in use or only carry freight. However, where there is a choice (such as in Israel and Egypt) the trains are usually much more comfortable than the buses and compare favorably in price. On the other hand, they are less frequent and usually slower, while many stations are some distance out of the town centers they serve. In general, tickets are only sold at the station and reservations are either compulsory or highly recommended. It's always advisable to book bus seats in advance at the bus station, which is usually the only ticket outlet and source of reliable information about current services. Reservations are a must over the Muslim weekend (Friday) as well as during public holidays.
