UKRAINE | Railways

I can hardly read Ukrainian text and I can pick up every other word though and I am sure other users will be interested about ukrainian railways too.

Any further details about new electric unit developed in cooperation with Siemens ? I read also they will help with designing brand new unit for future high speed rail. Which lines in Ukraine are suitable for 160 kph speed ? I must say 'Ekspres Ukraina' cars look very good.

Making one of the ugliest trainsets attractive could be a really tough job in other circumstances, but not on this day, when photographers got help from passengers to accomplish the task.


One half of a 2M62 passes over the Dniester river bridge with a south bound service,the bridge links the two locations Zalishchyki with Kostrizhevka.

Parked next to the river Prut this ancient motorbike looks like if the recent flood have taken its toll on it. However it's used by an angler daily.

Ukrainian long distance trains are quite comfortable. Like in Russia, there are 3 classes (all with beds). The cheapest class (plackarta) has not separate compartments. Middle class (kupe) has 4 beds in compartment. It is very comfortable.
8 years ago I took train from Lviv to Simferopol in Crimea. Journey took 27 hours but it was not boring. The food in train is cheap. You have free boiling water in car. The train is punctual. On stations local people sell cheap food.

UKRAINE | Railways

As a preparation for the UEFA Euro 2012 cup that is being hosted by Poland and Ukraine, the infrastructure has to be improved. Last month (December 2009), the UEFA president Michel Platini said that all 4 cities in Ukraine were approved, and the same thing with Poland, yet he said that if a city falls back too much off the schedule, he will have the right to remove one (Or maybe even a few cities). The second largest city in Ukraine, Kharkiv, is also indeed improving their infrastructure, and Im suprised to find this, a double deck train that they are planning to release (Or already have, Im not really sure because there is still no information).





The first photo looks like it was taken in Ukraine, but the second one is definitely not taken in Ukraine because the sign that is hanging up on the metal poles is not Ukrainian at all.

The first photo is from the Czech Republic. The rails seem normal gauged, and the livery of the train is the proof for that. About the second photo, its without doubt a Regio DB, from Germany.

Usually in English they are called double deck trains or bi-level trains.

The first is indeed a train from the Czech Republic and is manufactured by Skoda. The same manufacturer that is building the double decker trains for Ukrzaliznytsia, it might be a broad gauge version of the same type on the picture.

The first pic is a Skoda EMU of the Czech "Esko" service (the commuter rail of Prague). The second is showing a car of DB Regio built by Bombardier, used for regional services. Both are standard gauge.
So, basically, no information about Ukraine at all. Could you post the source where you've read about these double deckers for Ukraine?
