Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation Limited (Maha Metro) on Sunday received their first CRRC train for Pune Metro’s 14.665 km Aqua Line (Vanaz – Ramwadi) at Vanaz Depot.
This train-set – like the two others on the 16.589 km Purple Line (PCMC – Swargate) – have temporarily been borrowed from Nagpur Metro to facilitate the start of trial runs before the system’s dedicated Titagarh – Firema train-sets start arriving from Italy and West Bengal this summer.
Here’s a snap of the train’s driver motor car (DMC) facing the workshop shed at the unloading / receiving line. In the coming weeks, the train will be coupled for static and dynamic tests / validations within the depot.
I’ve asked MahaMetro if the Aqua Line will also temporarily have 2 CRRC train-sets and will update this section when confirmed.
3 weeks ago they uploaded this drone-view of Vanaz Depot which they’re now referring to as Hill View Park Depot:
And a month ago, they uploaded this drone-view of the 7.5 km Vanaz – Civil Court section (Reach 2) where the train will be tested on a portion of it in the coming months. Out of all stations, Garware College Station seems to be in the most advanced stage of completion.
