Egyptian trains have long been maligned by old carriages, a poor safety record and low levels of passenger comfort. In an effort to modernise the country’s infrastructure, the Egyptian government is undertaking a full railway modernisation program including the acquisition of new carriages which are expected to replace 34% of the current fleet and dramatically improve onboard comfort. 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.
