Egypt Receives Railway Coaches From Russia

Alexandria port on Monday received 13 passenger railway coaches, with the Transport Ministry now having received a total of 173 coaches.

This comes as part of a deal to manufacture and supply 1,300 coaches signed between the Egyptian National Railways (ENR) and the Russian company Transmashholding (the representative of the Russian-Hungarian alliance) at a cost of 1.16 billion euros.

This batch consists of third-class coaches with dynamic ventilation, with the rest of the coaches to arrive according to schedule.

The new coaches are entered into service according to the daily operating schedule on the ENR so that citizens each month can see these completely new trains firsthand, all coming as part of the ministry’s efforts to improve its services.
