Alstom Metropolis C751C
North East Line
Built 2014 - 2016
18 trains of 6 cars each, numbered 7051/7052 to 7085/7086
Contract 751C for the design and building of the trains was awarded to french company Alstom Transport on 1 February 2012.
The trains are designed and manufactured by Shanghai Alstom Transport, and are similar to the first generation Alstom Metropolis C830 trains on the Circle Line. The first C751C train entered service on 1 October 2015.
Utilising Alstom's Urbalis 300 CBTC system, these trains are fully automated and can run without any train attendant on-board.
The LCD screens found on board the C751A trains were also depreciated in the C751C trains. The trains feature an additional viewing space on the detrainment door at both ends of the train, allowing passengers a view of the tunnel while on board.
The 18 additional trains for the North East Line is an effort by the Land Transport Authority to increase the capacity of the line by 70%, thus boosting the train frequencies during the peak hours.
The C751C trains have a contrasting exterior livery: a dark background at the top and white at the bottom, with a strip of orange and purple band down the middle.
The front of the train is curved, giving it a more streamlined look.
The train numbers are displayed on an orange LED display at the top of the left windscreen.

Both ends of the train feature a viewing space and an emergency exit.
The viewing space allows passengers to have a view of the tunnel through the windscreen.
