Jacinta Allen, public transport minister of the state of Victoria, Australia, visited the subway car model produced by China's largest high-speed railcar maker, CRRC Corporation Limited, in Melbourne on Monday.
The model, 39 meters long, shows off the cutting edge technology of high-volume subway cars.
The new subway train can accommodate 1,380 passengers, while existing ones in Victoria can carry only 900 people.
The train is expected to operate on the Cranbourne - Pakenham line and reach Sunbury in mid-2019.
