Astra Passenger Coaches in talks with Sri Lanka Railways

Astra Passenger Coaches is in talks with Sri Lanka Railways (SLR) for the delivery of 280 passenger coaches. The negotiations for the procurement of 160 coaches delivered urgently and 120 in a second phase of the contract are taking place at Astra’s manufacturing plant in Arad.

It is not the first time SLR and Astra collaborate. In 1970, SLR imported 1000 coaches produced by the  Romanian rolling stock manufacturer.  These have been refurbished a couple of years ago and are also used by private passenger operators Expo Rail and Rajadhani Express, in partnership with SLR.
