DMRC starts trial runs of six-coach trains on Gurgaon Line

New Delhi: Passengers on the busy Gurgaon Line metro can hope to have a much more comfortable ride soon with the DMRC on Sunday starting trial runs of six-coach trains on the route.
The Delhi Metro will run trial services of six-coach trains before actually putting them on service so as to facilitate smooth transition.
"These trial runs are being conducted to ensure full safety of the Rolling Stock, Signalling, Electrical and other systems of these six coach trains," DMRC spokesman Anuj Dayal said.
Currently, only Line 3 (Dwarka Sec 21-Noida City Centre/Anand Vihar) has six-coach trains.
There will be a change in the stopping point on the platform for the six coach trains. However, all four-coach trains on this line will continue to stop at the normal stopping point, a DMRC official said.
The Delhi Metro introduced the first ever six coach Metro train into passenger services on December 23, 2010 on Line 3 and 4 (Dwarka Sector 21?Noida City Centre and (Dwarka Sector 21-Anand Vihar ISBT). At present, a total of five six-coach trains are running on this line.
By the end of 2011, there will be 95 six coach trains (93 broad gauge and two standard gauge) in the Delhi Metro network. Of the total 208 trains, 113 will be four coach, Dayal said.
On Line 2 (Jahangirpuri?HUDA City Centre), there will be 54 six-coach trains by the end of 2011, he said.
Similarly, on Line 3 and 4 (Dwarka Sector 21 Noida City Centre and Anand Vihar ISBT) there will be 39 six-coach trains and on Line-6 (Central Secretariat Badarpur) there will be two six-coach trains by this year end, he said.
