According to government, six Indian-manufactured Metro rail coaches have been exported to Australia.
These coaches are built in Baroda. The coaches are 75 feet long and weigh 46 tonnes each, requiring a superior and highly specialised loading operation with a high degree of precision. The entire stevedoring operation of these coaches has been done by Mumbai Port Trust.
A total of 450 ‘Made in India’ coaches will be exported to Australia over the next two-and-a-half years.
