“We did not want to miss the opportunity of getting a feel of the actual coach.

We are really happy that BMRCL officials have displayed it.”

`Route Number 0006 MG Road’ has turned into a picnic spot.

Sunday saw a huge rush of visitors at Anil Kumble Circle on MG Road where the mock-up train of Namma Metro has been displayed with vendors making the best of it to do roaring business through the day.

It is a week since the Metro coach display began and the flow of visitors has not stopped. “We have been waiting for the Metro project to fructify for a long time and wanted to see how a coach would look like. It’s really exciting especially for children who wanted to stay in the mockup train for hours together,” said a visitor, Sania Rizwi.

College goers and working professionals who are likely to benefit the most when Namma Metro is launched, also thronged the Circle. Peanut and popcorn sellers accompanied them, giving an idea how the train would be like once it is launched.
The replica painted in steel grey with pink borders, is complete with a coach/passenger saloon, a driver's cabin, dummy electrical propulsion equipment below the coach, seats and stainless steel railing.

"We did not want to miss the opportunity of getting a feel of the actual coach. We are really happy that BMRCL officials have displayed it. It provides a glimpse of how public transport in the city will look in future," said software employee Rajesh Menon.
