Myanma Railway has accelerated since 2013 and launched special air-con coachs plying. There are altogether seven coaches including this month new one, per source of MR.
Now, seventh air-con coach purchased from Japan is running and according to public requirement, there is a plan
to run with the rest coaches at suitable routes.
“When compared with the past, the trains meet scheduled right time. As the number of passengers is increased, there should be regular ticket checking. The doors of the new air-con cars are not safe. Due to failure of cooling system, windows are kept open” said a commuter.
In circular railroad, there are 23 coaches with only four air-con ones.
MR announced that it has been thriving and so the Ministry has international contacts. Asa part of upgrading programme, the old Yangon circular coaches will be substituted with air-con coaches made in Japan before the end of this year.
