Manufacturer Bombardier has been named as the preferred bidder to build a new monorail in the Egyptian capital Cairo.
The company said the rolling stock will be developed and built at its centre in Derby as part of the contract worth €3bn (£2.65bn).
The project will see 34 miles of monorail built connecting the New Administrative City with East Cairo and a second line of 26 miles between Sixth of October City and Giza.
The award is subject to contract and final confirmation.
At least 25 people died when a train hit a buffer stop and exploded at Cairo's main railway station.
