Hi, I read your website for updates on Bengaluru Metro. Very good and informative.
With the trials on between National college and Yelachenahalli, do you think they will open it for the public by Feb as promised?
reason why you are not active on this site? Surely lot of railfans will be interested on your take about many aspects of IR, since you seem to have vast knowledge and expertise about this subject.

Following an approval from the Commissioner of Metro Rail Safety (CMRS), the Chennai Metro Rail Ltd. on Tuesday started testing services utilizing its rake interchange ramps located at the Alandur interchange station. The CMRL hasn’t indicated how long the tests or ‘live trials’ with passengers onboard will last, but while they continue users will be able to travel between Koyambedu station and the Airport station without needing to switch lines at Alandur.
Check out the link for more information to see how the rakes can interchange!

Good news.
Ahmedabad is distinctly a late starter (w.r.t. first metro). Though work started late, it seems to have picked up fast. After all the reputation of Gujrat as the best facilitator of new project has to be kept intact.
Hope to see Ahmedabadis zip past the rest of the traffic in metro trains.
