Can someone tell me why is there such a big gap? Is it because the conventional Russian trains are much wider?

Just poor quality RZD standards on platforms. Trains are wider, but there are a lot of such gaps on many stations even with conventional trains.

Research concerning Maglev-Trains in Russia

What kind of research was ( or is still) made concerning Maglev trains in Russia? I Know, it was done during the Communist Era and I read that it was planned originally to build the subway of Almaty according this technology, but as result of technical problems not done. Who knows more?

Maglev in subway of Almaty? Sorry, dude, it is Sci-Fi.

First of all, maglev is very complex and expensive. Second, the main advantage of maglev is high speed. But high speed can be achived only on long distance (tens or hundreds kilometres). Typical distance between subway station about 1-1.5-2 kilometres. Imho, maglev can not be used as subway from both economic and technical point of view.

P.S. Sorry for engRish.

Nevertheless, the use of MagLev in Russia would be very sensitive.

RZD seeks international high speed expertise

31 August 2011



RUSSIA: Foreign contractors would be invited to bid for the construction of a proposed high speed line between Moscow and St Petersburg, Russian Railways President Vladimir Yakunin has confirmed.

A seminar was held in Moscow on August 29 to discuss the potential for South Korean suppliers and financiers to co-operate in the development of a Russian high speed network, and Yakunin said RZD is also 'actively studying' high speed rail in France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands and Spain.

RZD subsidiary Skorostniy Magistrali is developing proposals for a 660 km high speed line which would cut Moscow - St Petersburg journey times to 2˝ h from the current 3 h 45 min on the 645 km existing route used by 250 km/h Siemens Sapsan trains.

According to RZD, the new line would have capacity for 'up to 42 trains to run simultaneously at speeds of up to 400 km/h, allowing for the transportation of up to 8 million passengers per year.'

Yakunin said the high speed proposal is not only 'a formidable business project', but also 'a crucial element of state policy with respect to innovation and socioeconomics'.

Russian Railways orders eight more Sapsan trains


Russian Railways signed an order for a further eight Siemens Velaro RUS high speed trainsets on December 19. The contract is worth €600m, including a 30-year maintenance agreement.

The 10-car trainsets will be manufactured at Siemens' Krefeld plant in Germany for delivery from January 2014. They will be used to increase capacity on the Moscow - St Petersburg route, where the first Velaro RUS trains entered service in December 2009 running at up to 250 km/h. A Moscow - Nizhny Novgorod service was launched in July 2010.

Increasing the fleet will provide spare capacity during train maintenance, and offer the possibility of running in pairs to provide 20-car trains.

Siemens said the newly-ordered trains will include an additional premium class area and a 'superior-comfort' VIP zone, with all cars offering internet access.

At the contract signing, RZD President Vladimir Yakunin said Sapsan services between Moscow and St Petersburg 'have become an integral part of the transit infrastructure for the residents of the two cities'; RZD presented a certificate to the five millionth Sapsan passenger on December 17.

The Sapsan schedule between Moscow and St Petersburg does not make sense.

http://eng.rzd.ru/isvp/public/rzdeng?STRUCTURE_ID=4212

Sometimes they're every 15 minutes, and sometimes you have to wait nearly 9 hours for the next one.

Bizarre railroad.

Well, because there is an rush hours and a non-rush hours... And the Simens didn't installed 2 train capability on the first set of trains So railway is forced to launch them one after another.

And the maximal gap isn't 9 hours - no sane person would ride a sitting train all night long, while Moscow - St. P. still have a number of sleepers, both premium and regular. There is just no demand on Sapsan after 20 and before 6.
