The Mitsubishi Crystal Mover is an automated people mover (APM) system for airports and light rail applications manufactured by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and is based on the Japanese APM standard.
The C810 and C810A trains are Singapore's second variant of LRT cars, which operates on both the Sengkang and Punggol LRT lines.
A total of 57 train cars were purchased under contracts 810 and 810A, operating across the two LRT Lines and are housed in Sengkang Depot.
It operates on an exclusive elevated guideway, unhampered by automobile and pedestrian traffic. Its rubber tyres are extremely quiet as compared to the metal wheels of the MRT.

57 train cars, numbered 01 to 57
Contract 810 for the design and building of the trains was awarded to Mitsubishi Heavy Industries.
The Light Rail Transit (LRT) system was developed to extend the reach and accessibility of the MRT network.
41 train cars were bought for the Sengkang and Punggol LRT, which commenced service on 18 January 2003 and 29 January 2005 respectively.
Contract 810A for the design and building of the trains was awarded to Mitsubishi Heavy Industries.
The C810A trains are similar to the first generation Mitsubishi Crystal Mover C810 trains on the Sengkang and Punggol LRT. The first two C810A trains entered service on 5 April 2016.
The 16 additional train cars is an effort by the Land Transport Authority to increase the capacity of the line by about 40%, boosting train capacity during peak hours.
Between 2013 and 2015, 16 of the existing single car C810 trains were modified to be coupled for 2-car operations. Modifications are required to the signalling system and trains for dual-car service. Two seats from both ends of the train car were replaced with a signalling box, housing the new signalling equipment. The dual-car train system was commissioned for revenue service on 5 January 2016 for the Sengkang LRT and 29 December 2016 for the Punggol LRT.
The exterior of the train has a dual-colour colour scheme of dark blue and white.
The front of the train is designed such that it reflects the modern look of Sengkang and Punggol.
The windows of the train are also tinted turquoise.
Both ends of the train feature a viewing space and an emergency exit.
The viewing space allows passengers to have a view of Sengkang or Punggol through the windscreen.
The emergency exit ramp will be deployed in an emergency.
Overhead hand grips are positioned along the aisles of the train cabins to provide standing passengers with increased support.
Additional hand grips were installed in selected trains.
Provide support for passengers boarding or alighting the trains and for passengers standing near the doors.
