My worst fears regarding rakes to be procured in MUTP phase 2 have come true. It is now official. ICF will build the coaches for phase 2 as well. This page on the MRVC website gives details of projects planned under MUTP-2. Executing agencies mentioned for procurement of rakes are MRVC & ICF.
I am not having any expectations from the new rakes at all. This will help avoid disappointment when the rakes arrive and their “world class” features & qualities are exposed for the world to see 😉 We should now get ready for rakes that are even more swankier and even more world class than phase 1 rakes 😀
