Intercity passenger train manufacturer Talgo was recently contracted by the Saudi Railways Organization to build and operate a 450-km high-speed railway connecting Mecca and Medina.

Bombardier, the world’s largest train maker, said the deal is likely to include propulsion and control packages and high-speed bogies. Most of these will be manufactured at its Trapaga plant in Spain.

Shares of the Montreal-based company, which is also the world’s third-largest plane maker, closed at C$3.74 on the Toronto Stock Exchange on Monday.
