Better replacethe EMU rolligns stocks in Mumbai with the Delhi Metro ROlling Stocks
I think its the skybus metro project which is confirmed with an initial proposal of 11 kms track , later possibly being expanded to 85 kmselitecavalier said:Really? I thought a metro was confirmed for Mumbai!
Khun Wisarut, this is a good idea to use the Delhi Metro rolling stock on the Mumbai Suburban system. I haven't riden the Dehli but it looks great and the Mumbai stock really needs to be upgraded. i understand that there is a plan to introduce a metro in Mumbai and obviously it would need to be very frequent given the current liferisking activity of getting on/off a peak hour train in Mumbai!Wisarut said:Yeah, Delhi Metro used 5 Feet 6 Inch Broad gauge [1.676 meter gauge] - the standard guage of India Railway System ...
Hope that this kind of rollign stock of Delhi Metro will replace the junk EMUs for Mumbai Commuter System + Kolkatta Commuter System
A correction. Hong Kong MTR had nothing to with this system, either as consultants or otherwise. The rolling stock is similar in HK and Delhi since the supplier (ROTEM of Korea) is the same. The lead technical consultants for Lines 1 and 2 were Pacific Consultants. Line 3 is being implemented in house, since the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has confidence that the necessary skills have been developed inhouse while Line 1 and Line 2 were being built. In fact, DMRC is now offering consultancy services to other cities in India that are building metros (and there is almost a metro-building frenzy about to get underway all over India - Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chennai and Mumbai have already started the process).nova said:They were technical consultants. But the rolling stock is Korean made, at least initially. Future rolling stock will be manufactured in Bangalore.
Yes, the Korean company certainly did a good job with the trains.soulkorea said:You mean those trains are made in Korea?
Another good collaborate between Korea and India.
A couple of days ago, I saw an Indian man in his late 30's with a Korean wife and very young twin daughters. They were the cutest looking kids. And what impressed me was that the Indian man spoke almost perfect Korean. Seems like there are more Indians living in Korea nowadays, nice.
