Rail Coach Exports

.
Between 1968 and 1980, India's Integral Coach Factory (ICF) at Perumbur,  exported railway coaches to a number of countries. According to a report on ICF's Golden Jubilee celebrations (2004), a total of 244 broad-gauge coaches had been exported to Taiwan alone.

When and why did these exports cease to South East Asian countries?

 Still trying to figure this out...
