CRRC Corp, the rail equipment manufacturing behemoth formed after the merger of CSR and CNR, announced its first overseas deal after the merger through its official Weibo account, China's biggest twitter-like social media platform, on June 8.

Dalian Locomotive and Rolling Stock Company, a subsidiary company of CRRC, received the contract for 112 subway cars of 14 subway trains from the Indian Ministry of Railways on the day.

With a maximum capacity of up to 2,500 people and a maximum speed of 80 km per hour, the first subway train will be delivered at the beginning of 2017.

Kolkata, the third-biggest city in India, will replace the old trains that have been running for over 30 years in its south-north subway line which reaches a length of 23.45 km in order to ease the transportation pressure.
