Did MTR do any consultation work for Delhi Metro? CAF trains are also used on Airport services in Hong Kong. The choice of rollingstock from Bombardier and ROTEM are also an indication to my contention. MTR will purchase Bombardier rollingstock as of this year, and they currently use ROTEM stock as well.

I don't think MTR consults Delhi Metro, in fact DMRC itself is consulting more than a dozen metros in India and abroad. However, Delhi metro was largely inspired from MTR right from the beginning, that's why it shares a lot of similarities with MTR. Also I think first batch of operators of Operation Control Centre (OCC) were trained by MTR.

But having similar rolling stock is more of a coincidence IMO as even the loading gauge of the two metros are different. Delhi metro used broad gauge for its older lines and is using standard gauge for new lines. Delhi metro's Rotem-Mitsubishi broad gauge stock looks almost same as one of the stocks of MTR.



And the airport express of the two metros are also similar looking. I think the Rotem-Mitsubishi's standard gauge stock is the only rolling stock of Delhi metro which looks different from MTR.

How does the Bombardier stock of MTR looks like. Are there any pics of that ?

This airport express line will improve the connectivity to the airport tremendously and most passengers traveling by railways will get easy transfer and access to the international airport.

^Its just his defense mechanism. He cannot afford to get emotionally invested in his country because he knows that it will never match his standards or ideas. Negating all the 'positive' aspects is just one way of doing that.

New trams do give Kolkata a boost.. but I still feel that we need dedicated tram corridors.. thats the only way we can use the tram network to its maximum potential.. and then it shall be able to run at its best speed..
