The Vietnam Railways Corporation (VNR) has launched six new high-quality trains on the Thong Nhat (North - South) route at Sai Gon Train Station.

Vu Anh Minh, chairman of VNR, said on January 10 that the new trains were five-star quality and would meet passenger demand for transport during the Tet (Lunar New Year) holiday.

VNR has upgraded trains and stations and offered discount tickets.

The new trains are expected to meet demand for quality services and conveniences, reducing the pressure on overcrowded roads.

The six trains, which have a total of 90 carriages, include alert systems, displays of the next train station, temperature, and train speed.

The trains have semi-automatic doors, power sockets, big corridors, eco-safe toilets, and quality air conditioning systems.

Each carriage bed has a reading lamp and USB charger. A total of eight televisions are also installed in the carriages.

Carriages serving meals are located in the middle of the train for passenger convenience.

Free meals are served on the trains, with meals following aviation standards, at three train stations in Hanoi, Sai Gon and Da Nang.

All staff have passed a training course at the Aviation Academy.

Deputy Minister of Transport Nguyen Ngoc Dong praised the efforts of VNR to enhance transport quality and use technology in management.

“I hope the new trains can help reduce shortcomings in the railway and contribute to the sustainable growth of the country’s railway sector,” he said.
