The first of seven Talgo trainsets for Egyptian National Railways has been delivered from Spain to the port of Alexandria.
In April 2019 ENR selected Talgo to supply and maintain a fleet of 160 km/h inter-city trainsets for its principal routes linking Alexandria, Cairo and Aswan, in a project funded by the European Bank for Reconstruction & Development.
Each 14-car trainset will have five first class and eight second class coaches plus a buffet car, giving a total of 492 seats, along with a diesel-electric locomotive and a generator car.
The interior configuration is derived from the trainsets supplied for the Haramain High Speed Rail line in Saudi Arabia, which are designed to operate in very high temperatures and pressure sealed to minimise the ingress of sand.
