I am happy that this rolling stock is getting designed and manufactured in India. But I also hope that ICF will design modern trainsets and metro coaches. ICF has manufactured Train-18 and Medha rakes(Kolkata metro). Inter department politics almost brought T-18 near to death. In coming years more metros, meteolites and semi high speed routes will be constructed. They will need new metro coaches and current metros will need replacement for older ones. We currently operate metro coaches from Alstom, Hyundai Rotem, Bombardier and Chinese ones. If we have our own Indian alternative that will be a good thing.Bombardier official video on RRTS rolling stock. Will be manufactured at their plant in Vadodara.
