It's weird that the maximum speed is only 140km/h as the Estonian bid required a vmax of 160 km/h. FYI, a speed of more than 120 requires major upgrades in signalling.

The maximum speed could be limited to 140 km/h, because this is first CAF built train for Russian gauge.

Well, classical late-Soviet "двухсторонняя автоблокировка" together with 4digit cab signalling seems to handle 140 and 160 just excellent.

No, your statement makes no sense. Usually the maximum speed is defined by the purchaser of the train. Sometimes the purchaser asks for maximum travel times. In any case, 140 km/h is what fulfills the operators requirements.

Pasažieru Vilciens signed train purchase contract with Construcciones y Auxiliar de Ferrocarriles (CAF).

[IMG]http://i43.************/x38lzm.jpg[/IMG]

Pasažieru Vilciens finally signed train purchase contract with CAF. Previously CAF's victory on passenger trains supply procurement was contested by Stadler Rail. However,court ruled in favour of CAF's entry and at the beginning of April contract was finally signed.
Pasažieru Vilciens CEO Nils Freivalds visited CAF factories and expressed confidence that Spanish company is able to fulfil order for 41 passenger trains by 2015. PV ordered 34 EMU's and 7 DMU's - order will replace entirely old Latvian electric passenger train fleet and 1/3 of current diesel passenger train fleet. Freivalds said the fact that the trains to be built for Latvia were identical was their main advantage: the new trains will ensure flexible passenger transport options as they may be combined in various ways in just couple minutes, from one-car trains to trains with multiple cars. Also, there will be no problems with adapting the new trains for using different sources of energy. CEO refused to reveal exact cost of contract.
New trains are expected to start operating at first half of 2014.
Biggest issues between Pasažieru Vilciens and CAF were caused by PV's service & maintenance demand in contract. By that CAF is obliged to provide train maintenance for next 30 years.

No it's not. It might be the first CAF-/designed/ train for the /Soviet/ gauge, but since many of the Sm4 trains in Finland were built by CAF (although designed by Fiat Ferroviara), it isn't the first CAF-built train. And besides, using 8.9 cm wider bogies really isn't that horribly difficult. Any train manufacturer can do that.

In this case 140 km/h or 160 km/h makes no big difference. I am not aware of any portions of railway were speeds higher than 120 km/h would be allowed. Most of it is much slower than that...

By the way is the line from Skulte to Limbazi and Aloja completely abandoned even for freight? I remember taking that train few times as a kid in the early 90-ties...

From Skulte there is only 1-3 km of railway left, rails further than that has been taken off!

Completly abandoned and demolished. Here are a few pics from my last year trips to Limba˛i:

Wow, I had no idea! Haven't traveled in that direction for a decade or more... A bit sad really, the line while dilapidated still could have been used for something. Yet another shortsighted move from out "great" government.

If dilapidated enough, it would not have been safe for any use -- even at 5km/h. The line might not have been worth the expense of restoring it to safe standards.

maybe till Limbazhi it could 26 km from Skulte. besides no line is worth restoring here except suburban electrical trains and east-west freight corrdor. so same future awaits Gulbene - Plavinas part of railway which may be the last line disappearing in close future.

For the similar reason- in summer 2008.

Last scheduled train ran, if I'm not mistaken, in 2000.

Nowadays this is often used there to transport railway workers.

Latvian Railways network speed limits in km/h (for 2014)

This doesn't include minor restrictions between stations. Keep in mind that most <100kph lines are freight-only.
Black dots are stations, black lines are abandoned ones. Dashed lines are U/C while gray lines are in station with too complicated speed limits to show.

The new booster ČME3MB-01


When I say new, I mean totally renewed undercarriage with everything above it new. Rebuilt from an old ČME3 locomotive in our workshops.

For now we will have two boosters with the one in the picture being the first.

This is how that booster looked before:
