The new carriages, delivered today include state of the art facilities, lighting, retention toilet systems and more.
As part of its modernisation 2018 the Egyptian Railways entered a contract with the Russian Tver Carriage Works to deliver 90 first class carriages with air conditioning, 180 second class carriages with air conditioning, 30 second class carriages with air conditioning and a buffet, 500 third class carriages with air conditioning and 500 third class carriages with forced ventilation. The remaining carriages are expected to be delivered over the next 40 months.
