Saigon Railways to debut self-built train car next month

The Ho Chi Minh City unit of Vietnam’s railway operator is poised to introduce a new train car packed with modern accommodations next month in a bid to better serve their passengers.

The modern train car, set to be put into operation in mid-August, is co-produced by the Saigon Railways and Di An Train JSC in the southern province of Binh Duong.

The car is the prototype of a plan to build 14 more if proved effective, according to the train operator. 

The cabin, featuring four environmental-friendly composite berths, is equipped with LED lightings and windows with high-quality sunshades, plus washing basins with infrared sensors.

Built with hardened steel body frame, the train car is utilized shock absorbers and dampers from Japan to minimize noise and maximize smoothness when travelling, enhancing comfort for boarding passengers. 

The Saigon Railways is slated to have 30 such new high-quality cars by 2017.
