    Bombardier has its being reported won a contract to build and provide rolling stock for a large (60 mile) monorail in Egypt with the 70x4 car monorail trains to be built in derby between 2021 and 2024 on a new production line.

    Its the first UK rolling stock export since the Gautrain.

    Useful work for Derby, though rather going against how the factory has operated in recent years which has tended to be high volume orders of fairly standardised product

    280 carriages isn't exactly a Swiss narrow-gauge custom order.
