Ilham Aliyev reviewed a newly-brought electric railcar

President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev has reviewed a newly-brought electric railcar.

Transport Minister Ziya Mammadov and chairman of Azerbaijan Railways CJSC Javid Gurbanov informed the head of state about the redevelopment work on Baku-Sumgayit-Baku ring railway.

It was noted that the railway is 91km in length, with its two-line part being 85km and one-line section 4.4 km in length. The remaining 1.6 km long section of the railway will be 1.6 km in length. The Baku-Sumgayit ring railway is divided into two sections. The first section features 42km long Baku-Bilajari-Sumgayıt line, and the second includes 49km long Baku-Zabrat-Sumgayıt line. Reconstruction work has already been completed on the 55km long section of the railway.

The head of state was informed of the project of the Heydar Aliyev International Airport railway line. The railway line, which will be 25km in length, will contribute to the easing of traffic congestion in the city.

President Ilham Aliyev then reviewed the electric railcar.

KISS double-decker electric railcar was produced at Stadler Minsk factory of Stadler Rail Group company. The train has 396 seats, including 84 business class seats, and have a total capacity of 919 passengers. The railcars will go between Baku passenger station and Koroglu metro station during the first European Games, and will then be used on the Baku-Khirdalan-Sumgayit railway line. The trains will travel in Baku with an average speed of 63km per hour.

President Ilham Aliyev drove the railcar.

It was noted that the railway line will carry an estimated 30,000-35,000 passengers on a daily basis.

Main building and platforms are better than current ones. Also railway station will be connected with "28 May" subway station. It will be more comfortable for passengers.

Since the country uses the Latin alphabet , why the locomotive number is written in old Soviet style ?

ТЭ instead of TE?

Maybe it's something to do with international trains?

In Latvia all mainline diesel locomotives also are in Cyrillic while all shunter locomotives (except unmodernised ČME3) and all domestic passenger trains are in Latin.

Then again - in Lithuania everything is in Latin...
