The Indian Army has completed the installation of a fleet of Imperial troop transports on the border with Nepal, defence officials said.
The fleet was placed on a new track in the sector on Thursday.
It will be the first operational transport of troops for the Indian Army in Nepal, which borders China.
Sources said the trains will be used to transport troops from the border areas of Bhutan, Bhutanese capital Jammu and Kashmir and Nepal to the Indian side of the border.
The Indian Army said the transport was built on a modified BMT-4, which has a total length of 5,400 metres (20,000 feet) and carries up to 12 personnel.
The vehicles will be operated by the Border Force Corps (BFC), the official said.
