Yes, Ukraina railways are just better then Hungarian, Serbian and Croatian. I don't know speed on all network, but on some part from Kiev to Budapest train is to fast to make good photographies Some parts of Ukraina are very beautyfull...and Ukraina village houses are the most beautyfull village houses i ever seen.

City main lines in some cities are 4 trucks railways. For example, Kiev main station have 14 trucks for intercity trains, and 12 for suburban trains...

I guess you're wrong. Rails are shiny which means they are in frequent use.

There are more than 10 daily trains between Kiev and Moscow. And there are direct trains from Moscow to every other big town in Ukraine (like Lviv, Odessa, Harkov, Ivano-Frankivsk, etc).
There are also trains from Ukraine to many other cities in Russia, like St. Petersburg or even to Vladivostok...

Hi, it would be nice if you could join this thread and attach pictures of examples of different solutions for helping disabled persons to board the train.

Barrier-free transport for the disabled - wheelchair lifts

Ukraine's world's best kept secret!

It's rolling stock is really beautyful!
I hope new rolling stock will have a similar aesthetic, modern but designed, not like random new european and asian rolling stock!

I'll visit the country anytime soon for sure!
how expensive are international trains to Poland, Hungary and Russia?

It depends on the train. The cheapest ticket Kiev-Moscow costs 1000 roubles or 25 euro.
