The 57 new train carriages for London Overground will be built in Derby. Delivery will begin in late 2014 and will finish in 2015.
The Derby-based company Bombardier has announced it has signed a contract with Transport for London to build 57 rail carriages for the London Overground network. The new cars will be used to turn current four-car trains into five-car versions.
The cost of the order is around £88 million.
