Changchun Railway Vehicles Company Ltd. (长春轨道客车股份有限公司) is a Chinese rolling stock manufacturer under CRRC Corporation. While the CRV emerged in 2002, the company's roots date back to the establishment of the Changchun Car Company in 1954.

The company has a joint venture established with Bombardier Transportation (Changchun Bombardier Railway Vehicles Co Ltd) to build Movia metro cars for the Guangzhou Metro and Shanghai Metro,[1] Rapid Transit Vehicle cars for the Tianjin Metro and the C951 for the Downtown Line

Production[edit]

The company supplied 17 trains Type A for the Al Mashaaer Al Mugaddassah Metro Southern Line in Saudi Arabia. The first trainset was shipped from China in May 2010 and the last arrived by the end of 2010 [2] and Tehran Metro Line 1 & 2.[3]

On June 25, 2010 the company delivered 12 new sets of 4C engines and carriages to Thailand's Bangkok Mass Transit System Public Company Limited (BTSC) in a deal said to be valued at US$70 million. The funding will be in the form of letters of credit issued by Bangkok Bank.

Each train set will comprise a motor car at each end, with two trailer cars in the middle. The carriages will be deployed on the Silom line, which runs through the heart of the business and financial districts along Silom and Sathon Roads, terminating at the National Stadium and Wongwian Yai. BTS Skytrain say the 12 train sets each have a capacity of 1,490 passengers, while the current 3C series can only hold 1,106. The majority of 3C trains that operated on the Silom line have been converted to operate on the Siemens signaling system in use on the original Sukhumvit line which runs northwards and eastwards between Mo Chit and Bearing.
