CHANGSHA - A subsidiary of China's leading railway car manufacturer CSR Corporation Ltd. has gained a new order for light rail trains from Malaysia, CSR Zhuzhou Electric Locomotive said Monday.

The order of 30 high-performance light rail trains, which include 180 cars, will run on Malaysia's AMPANG Line Extension Project, said the locomotive company.

The design on the train has taken full consideration of the tropical marine climate in Malysia by use of aseptic and dehumidifying technologies.

The sale is the company's seventh order from Malaysia for advanced rail traffic equipment and service technology.

Some of the trains will be assembled in the Malaysian branch company of CSR.

CSR, based in Beijing and listed on Hong Kong and Shanghai stock markets, has developed into one of the major players in the global railway transport industry and is one of the biggest by global sales revenue.

CSR Zhuzhou Electric Locomotive manufactures European-standard metro trains.
