GHAZIABAD (Metro Rail News): The first trainset of India’s first RRTS has reached Duhai Depot today. This trainset was loaded on a trailer from the manufacturing plant located in Savli, Gujarat and brought to Duhai via road.

In its journey to reach Duhai Depot, the train has travelled through three states, Rajasthan, Haryana and finally Uttar Pradesh. All the 6 coaches of the trainset were loaded on six separate trailers. On reaching the Duhai depot, they were unloaded with the help of a crane and in the coming days, the trainset will be assembled in the depot itself.
