Mumbai Rail Vikas Corporation (MRVC) Rakes

Information from Akshay Marathe's MRVC website.

New rakes are being inducted for Mumbai's suburban network to replace the old rakes as well as to add more capacity. These rakes are being purchased under the Mumbai Urban Transport Project (MUTP). Mumbai Railway Vikas Corporation (MRVC) Limited is the executing agency. These rakes have some new features like forced ventilation, better lighting, smoother ride quality, improved looks and quick acceleration and braking. There is a plan to purchase 174 rakes in phase 1 of MUTP.

The numbering of MRVC rakes is very haphazard and is getting more and more haphazard by the day. So, to help the curious tribe known as railfans, I have prepared these lists of rakes held by Western Railway (WR) and Central Railway (CR). Along with the rake numbers, I have also included the date on which the rakes were despatched to the respective railway from the Integral Coach Factory (ICF) located at Perambur near Chennai.

There is no clear distinction between the numbering series for the WR and CR rakes. There are two series, namely 107 and 207. Both are shared among WR and CR. The MRVC rake numbers are in the following format:

<series> <coach type> <serial number>

There are two possibilities in the first part. It can be either 107 or 207. The second part can either be A or B or C. The serial number gives us an idea of how many coaches of the same type and series were manufactured before that particular coach. Lets see a couple of examples to understand it better.

107 A 001: This means that the coach is the first coach of type A (trailer coach) in the 107 series.

107 C 038: This means that the coach is the thirty-eighth coach of type C (driving coach) in the 107 series.

207 B 022: This means that the coach is the twenty-second coach of type B (motor coach) in the 207 series.

See the article on EMUs for more on WR and CR EMU coach numbering, in particular the A-B-C (or 72-70-76 on CR) nomenclature.

Although there are two different series, i.e., 107 and 207, there is no physical difference between the coaches of both the series, except the slight differences in the arrangement of First class coaches of WR and CR.
