However, a senior official noted that the ICF envisions the production of 3,000 trains or more in 2018-19, with a number of new product variations in the pipeline for the coming year.
"Producing 2,503 units is an important milestone for us. However, we are aiming at 3000 coaches next year, and have many new products coming up. We are looking to supply 80 world-class coaches to Sri Lanka, for which the prototype will be ready tentatively in July. By 2020, we have also planned on introducing Train 20 aluminum body train set," he said.
The product mix consists of electric multiple units (EMUs) for Mumbai and Chennai, diesel-electric multiple units (DEMU) for Jammu and Kashmir, Kolkata Metro, Self Propelled Accident Relief Train (SPART), diesel-electric tower cars (DETC), tourist coaches for IRCTC, and Military Langer.
