The CNR Changchun Railway Vehicles Co., a subsidiary of the China Railway Rolling Stock Corp., the country's biggest train manufacturer, announced on Wednesday that the subway cars developed for Iran have officially rolled off the assembly line in Changchun, the capital of Jilin province, according to the China News Service website. 

These subway trains will be used for operation on the subway Line 2 in Mashhad, Iran's holiest and second-biggest city. The order from Iran included a total of 100 vehicles, a portion of which will be produced by Tehran Wagon Manufacturing, a joint venture between Iran and the CNR Changchun Railway Vehicles Co.

Because Mashhad abounds with turquoise, the color turquoise was extensively used for the exterior decoration of the train cars, and the color of the interiors is also fresh and bright. In addition, some carriages are reserved for women only.

Mohammad Mahdi Baradan, deputy mayor of Mashhad, said that the light rail trains developed by the CNR Changchun Railway Vehicles Co. have been running for six years already, providing very good service for the city's public transport.

Since 1995, the company has provided 2,000 vehicles to Iran, including subway cars, light rail trains and passenger trains. In December 2015, the company, along with NORINCO International, signed a contract with Tehran, involving 1,008 subways cars and amounting to more than 9 billion yuan.
