Derby train-maker, Bombardier, looks set to win a multi-million pound order to build dozens of new carriages for the rail network in London.
Transport for London has approved plans to expand its overground fleet of trains and is in talks with Bombardier about the deal – thought to be worth at least £120 million.
The company says it can't comment while commercial negotiations are continuing. But rail industry expert, Sim Harris, says it's a welcome boost to the Derby workforce.
