Siemens Germany has begun implementing the first phase of a $23bn electric train project in Egypt. In the next issue of Future Rail, we take a closer look at this ambitious scheme and ask how it could transform the region.

We also find out how Network Rail will use new technology to recover stranded railway maintenance vehicles, and find out more about the challenges being faced by young rail professionals.

In our In Depth section, we’ll ask how railways could be set to drive economic recovery after the pandemic, and find out how well European railways are handling cybersecurity challenges compared to other countries around the world.

Finally, we explore some of the ways railway operators are trying to keep passengers entertained worldwide.
