CRRC delivers first train for Chongqing Line 5 Xinhua

THE first six-car train for Chongqing metro Line 5 was delivered by China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation (CRRC) Qingdao Sifang on May 27.

The 100km/h train has a maximum capacity of 2322 passengers, and is the first of 39 trains to be delivered for the line.

The new trains have a larger driving force and smaller turning radius than trains previously produced by CRRC Qingdao Sifang and are specially designed to handle the line’s steep gradients.
