How common it is when people use this train for transportation inside EU?
I'm thinking that the majority of passengers Board the train in Berlin.

Aren't these trains driving through Hannover and Düsseldorf?
I saw in the past sometimes one at the station in Hannover looking the same, comeing from Moscow, driving to Paris.

Did they changed it now or are there differet trains serveing the route Moscow Paris?

Can you say something about the price for such a trip?

No, they go via Strasbourg, Frankfurt, and Erfurt.

At one point the CNL Paris-Berlin carried through cars to Moscow (I think until 2012).
That train travelled via Strasbourg, Frankfurt and then Hannover.

Then between 2012 and 2014 there were two trains between Paris and Berlin (1. CNL Paris-Berlin/Hamburg/Munich and 2. RZD EuroNight Paris-Berlin-Moscow)

Its about EUR 160 for a bed in a 4-person compartment.

The Central Passenger Rail company (Moscow commuter rail) is buying one to put on the Golutvin-Ozyory route. Mostly as a trial, if they like it I hope they will buy more.

Russia to extend world's most northerly railway
Monday, January 04, 2016



VIS TransStroy, Russia, signed a concession agreement on December 30 to extend Gazprom's Obskaya – Bovanenkovo Yamal Peninsula line, which is already the world's northernmost railway, north to the port of Sabetta on the western shore of the Ob estuary

The 170km 1520mm-gauge line will cost Roubles 113bn ($US 1.54bn) to construct and is due to be completed by 2019. VIS TransStroy will design, build and operate the line until 2036, when control of the railway will be transferred to the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Region

That looks VERY good indeed. I don't think many international trains have this kind of luxury. How much does the trip cost in the different classes?

Because it was designed by Siemens and first cars were produced in Austria although interior was reportedly designed by TVZ and produced from outset in Russia. Here are details of that order.

Not really cheap, but it seems more than fair for what you get. Though it may be hard to compete with planes at this price. You have to choose luxery over travel time or just hate flying.

That is 110-162 euro, and it might be difficult to find airplane ticket Helsinki-Moscow for less than 200euro. So it is cheaper by train + arrives to city center, no need to spend money on taxi to/from airport.
