Transmashholding to provide tech support + spare parts for its railcar deliveries

Russia’s Transmashholding will provide technical support and spare parts for the 1.3k rail cars it is delivering to Egypt under a separate 12-year contract signed yesterday, the Transport Ministry said in a statement. The agreement will see the Russian company send 20 experts to Egypt to train engineers on railcar maintenance. The company signed a supply contract in 2018 as part of the country’s overhaul of its railway system. By our count, we have so far received 460 of those railcars.
