Various news reports suggest that the 2 rakes procured under MUTP-2, having Bombardier electricals will be in service by Independence Day, i.e. 15th August 2014! Apparently all trials have been completed. Final certification from RDSO and CRS is awaited.
So finally after a long wait of around 10-11 months, the rakes will enter commercial service. I am eagerly waiting to travel in them, and see what “wonders” ICF has pulled off in these rakes 😛 Stay tuned for unbiased, practical views on the rakes. The media will only praise the rakes. Watch this space for review that is relevant from the commuters’ point of view!
