Oldest Metro Railway of India and once a pride of the nation as a Indigenous Engineering Marvel and still to certain extent. With Delhi Metro being operational and expanding in leaps and bounds in last decade and Bangalore-Mumbai metro on a nascent operational stage, it cannot boast of its uniqueness no more , but still Indians can feel pride of a metro system that was made by entirely indigenous technology and still functioning as good as other metro systems in terms of safety/efficiency though newer metros like Delhi/Mumbai/Bangalore built through certain foreign expertise. The Indian Railway(ICF Perambur) made coaches are certainly not very good in looks and feel but still efficient. This 30 year old metro system and its Desi rakes still as efficient in operations as the swanky Euro-American made rakes. Existence and survival of this metro is itself a marvelous feat considering the political turmoil and interference
(read negligence) it faces since its birth and lack of investments or profit on the commercial side. Hats Off to Kolkata Metro.
