AGRA (Metro Rail News): On Tuesday, Agra witnessed a significant milestone as the Agra Metro project successfully conducted its first trial run from the Ramp Area of Agra Metro Depot to Taj East Gate Station. This came as a pleasant surprise to the residents who witnessed the maiden test run. This trial took place on a ballastless track spanning approximately 3 km. Previously, trials were conducted on the ballasted track in the metro depot.

One unique feature of the Agra Metro trains is that they won’t have any overhead equipment for movement. Instead, they will be powered by a charged third rail running parallel to the track.
