10 railway coaches brought from Indonesia

Ten new passenger coaches have been imported from Indonesia and sent to Saidpur Railway Workshop.

The modern coaches reached the workshop on Tuesday and the railway workers are now conducting inspection to prepare the coaches for trial run, sources said.

BR sources said that the coaches were made specifically for Bangladesh's particular needs by PT Inka (Persero). PT Inka is a state-owned train manufacturer, the first fully integrated rolling stock and automotive manufacturer in Southeast Asia.

Shawkat Jamil, divisional traffic officer of Bangladesh Railway (BR) West Zone (Rajshahi), said: “BR imported the coaches under a bilateral agreement between Bangladesh and Indonesia. Among the coaches one is AC berth, three are AC chair and rest six are Shovon chair.”

Workers at the workshop told the Dhaka Tribune that these coaches are of better quality than the Indian coaches.

Divisional Caretaker of Saidpur Railway Workshop, Nur Ahmed Hossain, said: “After completing the inspection, we will hand over the coaches to Railway traffic department for test runs.”
