Here’s the first look of the completed façade of a Kochi Metro train shot at Alstom’s rolling stock manufacturing plant in Sri City!

As a reminder, the first coach’s shell was unveiled at an event organized in March this year:

Back in September, the Kochi Metro Rail Corp had unveiled the train’s design:
More design renderings can be found here.
As a reminder, the first couple of coaches will soon start making a ~750 km journey from Alstom’s Sri City plant in Andhra Pradesh to Kochi Metro’s Muttom Depot and are expected to arrive on December 13!
