Titagarh Wagons enters metro refurbishment market
01 Jul 2014



INDIA: Titagarh Wagons Ltd announced its first contract in the metro market on June 16. This covers the mid-life refurbishment of seven eight-car Kolkata metro trains.

‘It is a very important milestone for the group’ since this marks our entry into the metro coach business segment’, said Umesh Chowdary, Vice-Chairman & Managing Director of Titagarh Wagons.

Noting that Indian Railways wagon orders have been ‘extremely depressed’ in recent years, he felt that entry into the passenger market would ‘de-risk the company’ from reliance on one segment of the market. It would provide ‘immense growth of opportunities’.

Chowdhary said ‘we have substantially upgraded our facilities in Uttarpara and are continuously improving it further to make ourselves fully prepared for manufacturing all sorts of passenger coaches including metro coaches. While our ultimate objective is to find a suitable technology partner, add to the present portfolio of products and undertake manufacturing of metro coaches and other modern passenger coaches, this order provides us with a stepping stone into this segment of business.'

Hi, guys! I am looking for clear map of city's tram network. Actually I found two tram maps, one of them is with stops. How accurate is this map?



And on the list of tram stops, locations of stops for some routes on official tram website are missing:
http://www.calcuttatramways.com/tram-route-search/

Google Maps didn't help me either - recently reopened Tollygunge-Esplanade tram route is missing. Can anyone help in stops name?

This is the place of the former BAGBAZAR TRAM TERMINUS. Closed in 2011. Route 7 & 8 served this place. Now route 8 starts service from Galiff Street. Route 7 was reintroduced on a partly different way as route 12/7.

I don't understand this number of routes such as 12/7, 20/17, 26/17? What does it means?

Actually it is a mixture of two routes. 12/7 means 12 is for Galiff street terminus, 7 is for the route of Bagbazar - Dharmatala route. It touches two alignments, so such mixed number. Such as 20 for Park Circus, 26 for Ballygunge, 17 for Bidhannagar Road etc. uses such mixed pattern. These are later routes, so such type of numbering.
