Transmashholding presents next generation EMU in Sochi
Friday, June 20, 2014



TVERSKOY Wagon Plant, a subsidiary of Transmashholding (TMH), Russia, presented a mock-up of its next generation EMU at the 9th 1520 railway forum organised by Russian Railways (RZD) in the Black Sea resort of Sochi.

The first of the Iwolga EMUs, series EG2Tv, will be designed for operation on high-density urban routes, and TMH plans to offer it to RZD for the new Moscow Circle Railway service. Tverskoy will produce the first two prototypes by the end of this year and hopes tocertify them for operation in late 2015.

Using the Iwolga platform, Tverskoy plans to create a range of single and dual-voltage EMUs for city, suburban, regional, and inter-regional services. The maximum speed of the new-generation trains will range from 160 to 250km/h.

Russian Railways plans to invest more in 2015
Monday, June 23, 2014

RUSSIAN Railways (RZD) plans to increase capital investment by 7% from $US 11.4bn this year to $US 12.2bn in 2015, Mr Valentin Gapanovich, senior vice-president of innovative development and chief engineer with RZD, announced at the 9th 1520 railway forum organised by RZD in Sochi last week.

There will also be a shift in emphasis from mechanical and engineering investment, where spending will fall from $US 3.7bn to $US 3.4bn, to infrastructure which will see a sharp rise from $US 2.9bn to $US 4.6bn. The redistribution follows the Russian government's decision to upgrade the Trans-Siberian and Baikal Amur Magistral (BAM) main lines.

Nevertheless, RZD plans to step up motive power and rolling stock acquisitions next year. Locomotive purchases will rise from 839 units to 886 in 2015 even though RZD expects to invest less, with locomotive spending falling from $US 2.1bn to $US 1.9bn. EMU car orders will increase from 685 to 750 with investment rising in line from $US 478m to $US 521.8m

First gas-reciprocating-engine locomotive on test in Russia
Wednesday, June 25, 2014



TEST running will begin soon at Egorshino depot in the Sverdlosvsk region of Russia of what is claimed to be the world's first gas-reciprocating-engine locomotive.

The TEM19 locomotive was designed by the Russian Institute of Research, Design and Technological Studies and built by Bryansk Engineering Plant, a subsidiary of Transmashholding.

The gas reciprocating engine has a modular design and a multi-functional microprocessor control and monitoring system. The locomotive runs on liquefied natural gas, which is less expensive than diesel and produces fewer pollutants. It is also expected to be cheaper to maintain than a diesel.

Around 300 hours of tests will be conducted. Testing is expected to be concluded by the end of the year paving the way for production of pilot batches

The railway would be initially built as nonelectrified as we can see in the clip. But does the bridge construction allow the possibility of converting it to an electrified in the future?

Actually, it was always planed as electrified. I think artist are just to busy with renders, and the agency that are responsible for bridge is the Russia highway authority. So no one cares, whether railway depicted correct or not.

Would you think that RZD would introduce a seperate train Berlin-Moscow on Talgo rolling stock, while still keeping the Paris-Berlin-Moscow service on traditional RIC cars alive?

The current order includes 3 trains with variable gauge, that wouldn't be enough for both Moscow-Berlin and Moscow-Paris.

Ok, I will rephrase my question.

Lets assume that RZD can only send RIC cars into the French network.
What do you think?
Would RZD keep its service to Paris with RIC cars alive, while starting another service to Berlin with Talgo cars?

I mean RZD cancelled a daily through car between Berlin and Moscow in December 2013. Why would RZD expand its service to Berlin?

Four years ago we had the following RZD services to Berlin:
Berlin - Moscow (thrice in winter, 6 times a week in summer; summer frequency have been cut in December 2011)
Berlin - Kaliningrad (daily, cut in September 2012)
(Amsterdam) - Berlin - Moscow (daily, cut in December 2011)
(Munich) - Berlin - Moscow (daily, cut in December 2010)
(Basel) - Berlin - Moscow (daily, cut in December 2013)
Berlin - Saratov, Novosibirsk, Omsk, Adler, Rostov (once a week, cut in December 2013)
Berlin - St. Petersburg (twice a week, cut in December 2012)
Berlin - Paris (thrice a week)

Today we have only 3 weekly direct services between Berlin - Moscow. Thats pretty meager. I really doubt that RZD would ever expand its service to Berlin.

The reasoning beyond expansion of Berlin service is simple: the current service to Berlin aren't competitive with anything, except for aerophobes and railfap... I mean people who enjoys train ride as separate experience and not just as mean of transit. The new service with variable gauge and greater Vmax and tilting would cut travel times, so train will again become a practical mean of getting from A to B.

The main problem for Poles, Germans and other EU citizens is the Transit Visa requirement for Belarus.
Air travellers need only to obtain a Russian Visa.
A faster train wont change anything.
Moreover, the current rail cars (Wlabmee RIC cars, built in the early 90s) have substantial issues with the air conditioning system (maybe its a construction, design or maintainance issue). With no real windows to open, these cars become stinky holes in the summer time. Actally German Railways can deny those cars to enter Germany and sometime they do at Frankfurt/Oder border station.

Well, it still better then current situation. And Talgo trainhotels doesn't tend to have issues with conditioning, AFAIK. Also, I suppose that the target group for this trains are citizens of Russia and Belarus.

TMH unveils 13MW electric locomotive for RZD
Wednesday, August 13, 2014



TRANSMASHHOLDING (TMH) presented the first four-unit 4ES5 electric locomotive for Russian Railways (RZD) to the governor of the Rostov region Mr Vasiliy Golubev, and RZD president Mr Vladimir Yakunin at Rostov-on-Don station earlier this month.

The 13.12MW unit, which TMH says is the world's most powerful dc electric freight locomotive, was built at the nearby Novocherkassk Electric Locomotive Plant.

TMH says the locomotive will be capable of hauling 7100-tonne trains on steeply-graded routes in eastern Russia, such as the Baikal-Amur Main Line and the Trans-Siberian Railway, where the regenerative braking system is expected to reduce traction power consumption by 15-17%.

The 4ES5 is equipped with microprocessor control, a telediagnostics system for remote fault-finding and independent traction control on each axle to optimise haulage capability.

TMH says it expects certification to be completed by November
