Winning the £1 billion contract to supply the Crossrail trains is a "huge boost" for the company, Bombardier's managing director has said.
Francis Paonessa said the Derby company had spent £20 million developing the Aventra train which will be built for the route.
We are absolutely delighted with the news, which is a real endorsement of the hard work the team has put in.
We have been working on the design for the past year. The train has wider gangways, is much lighter and more energy efficient.
He added that when built the train will be painted purple and black.
