one of the ridiculous things is train ticket prices there, as government pays literally almost all ticket price. suburban train costs 1000 rubles which is 1/8$ .

There's got to be a faster way to route trains from Mogilev to Brest than going through the capital, unless that route is limited to electrified trains.

One of the pictures published above shows a map of the Belarus network.
There is indeed a shortest way than going through Minsk, but we don't
know the state and characteristics of this line so we can't tell whether or
not this route is also faster...

Also, by going through Minsk, this train also attracts the ridership of all
people wanting to get there. We don't know at all if there is enough
demand for a direct link between Mogilev and Brest to make this train
profitable.

The new format of the Belarusian Railways

Belarusian Railways is a new format for passenger traffic. Its main attributes will be mobility and environmental friendliness. These two concepts - not only the demands of the times, but also the style of modern life.
So, what is the new format? It is a comprehensive system of passenger transportation services, designed to meet the demand of passengers transport services by using new technology and modern rolling stock, oriented to strengthen transport links
ommercial, regional, inter-regional and city line. In turn, the regional and inter-regional lines provided economy and business class.
Minsk International line will connect the capitals of other countries, commercial lines are designed for passengers on organized by natural or legal persons (travel, rent, special teams). Inter-regional - will provide convenient rail connections between regional centers, as well as the regional centers and capital. City lines - will link Minsk with the nearest suburban zone (Zhdanovichy), and in the future satellite city Zaslaul. Regional - will transport passengers within the territory of the regional center.New passenger format - new colors. Railway workers demonstrated at the conference visual concept of each of the seven lines. They all have a distinctive color scheme and indicated by different flowers, emblems.

REGIONAL LINES


INTERREGIONAL LINES


INTERNATIONAL LINES
