The delivery schedule provides for sending 35 units of equipment to the customer’s address every month. Trains are immediately formed from this rolling stock. For example, new railcars were included in trains running from Cairo to Alexandria, Assiut and Sokhna. Warranty service is carried out at the Abo Gates depot.
