One of the quirks of history for Dalaman is that, in 1905 the then Khedive (Viceroy) of Egypt Abbas Hilmi Pasha decided he wanted to build a plantation as a residence in Dalaman. He also decided that at the same time to build a Railway station in Alexandria. However due to a mix up of the materials, the station ended up in Dalaman and the plantation ended in Alexandria. It was cheaper to keep the materials in the wrong location and build than reship the material to the correct destinations, so the Khedive of Egypt had the station built in Dalaman with a couple of Kilometres of track leading nowhere.
