The Cairo train station fire on February 27, 2019 raised many questions about the policies of the Egyptian Railway Authority (ERA), which has not been able to stop train accidents; instead, they always cited human errors and losses resulting from providing subsidies to train tickets as justifications.

This study seeks to answer the question: What is behind the frequent train accidents in Egypt, and what is the ERA future in light of its high debts and the large gap between revenues and losses?

The study is divided into four parts:

First: Causes of frequent train accidents,

Second: Obstacles of railways development,

Third: Loans and new projects,

Fourth: Future of the railways in Egypt.
