Nice train, pity we EU citizens can't use it since october, as Russia decided that the border crossings with Belarus are only for citizens of BY and RUS.

I think nobody cares about that. RZD Web site will happily sell tickets to any EU citizen, most EU embassies say nothing about it, BY consulates still deliver transit visas with train tickets for justification, and there is still no example yet of an EU citizen thrown off his sleeper and turned back.

No at this moment there aren't any reports about people thrown out of train but some passengers already faced some problems regarding that as being detained, questioned and charged of “illegal border crossing” where embassy had to intervene. Polish examples of EU citizens.

I do not know as of now
... But this restriction was originally only for Polish citizens.
Due to Polish restrictions for Kaliningrad residents.

Well not going into further discussion about EU-Russia relations into who started what the problem at least in theory attributes to all EU citizens (well basically all people apart from Eurasian Customs Union) which is described here in English. Fact that Polish residents were kept as hostage first is a direct result of multiple standards on Russian side not treating EU as one entity but as bunch of different nations treated on different standards.

Therefore limit - applies to all EU countries.
___________
Although: restrictions for residents of Kaliningrad - Poland introduced separately!
EU Parliament - did not approve of this law.
_____________
Very surprising!)
You said - "it is not necessary to go into details"

you have gone deeper into the details))

I used to go to russia by train last and this year. For now I have to go only by plane or by car ( through Latvia)as I see. What I read it is that you can be fined and deported if you dont have the russian stamp on your passport, even if you got the migration card with the BY stamp on it. I read on Czech Embassy in Minsk that there are some discussions between EU and Russia to solve the question. The big looser for now might be Belarus, as only unaware people will ask for the transit visa, plus less EU cars on transit so less income from the toll. As the BY 1 year transit visa costs me 75 eur for now I will wait to see how they solve it.
Sorry for OT, but I am a little bit upset as I like to travel by train and I find your trains very comfortable.

Moscow-Berlin Talgo

Thanks for the pictures!! xalexey
A message from last summer with technical details (In the links there are images and more explanations in English):

Quote:

The four others were scheduled for Moscow-Kiev, and now make Moscow-Nizhny Novgorod under the trade name Strizh are also formed by 20 trailers: 2 first class, 9 second class, 5 sleeping berths, Restaurant, Cafeteria and 2 technical cars with generators; with a total of 414 seats.

Trains to Berlin are variable gauge (standard / russian), also have "Pendular by Talgo" (not tilting, cars are not inclined supported by the boogies but hanging: like a pendulum). t is already approved in Germany and Poland (including gauge changer) and are currently conducting tests for Russian approval (Results presentation 2Q2016 page 8).

The gauge change will be held in the gauge changer that Talgo has built in Brest (Belarus).

The "rodales" Talgo technology (not boogies are, no axes, they are independent wheels) incorporate a new system gauge change different from that used for the last 47 years in Spain, due to the presence of ice in them.

Video gauge change in Brest

In addition, and to run at 200 km/h in Germany, also incorporate electromagnetic brake skid. In a stand of variable gauge!



Trains could have counted on locomotives variable gauge as the spanish 130 series but RZD has preferred to use conventional locomotives of each country.
Certainly when dealing with night trains shall consider the time savings is not as important. Yet the new trains made the journey of 1,871 km in 18 hours (104 km/h on average, Talgo says) when now it takes 26 hours.

What will be the speed of this train in Russia, Belarus and Poland? So the journey will be shorter than usual?

Will RZD put this kind of trian also on other routes?

The train is homologated for 200 km/h in Germany, for which it has electromagnetic brake skid. In Russia the Strizh trains Moscow-Nizhny Novgorod (Talgo 9 like these, although of fixed width) are homologated to 200.

The reasons for the reduction are in the previous message: the pendular by Talgo makes that they can circulate 30% faster in curve with the same comfort, and that it is not necessary to change the bogies in Brest, but only change of locomotive and to pass the train by the gauge changer at 15 km/h.

If they had bought locomotives with variable width, it would not be necessary to even change the locomotive, although that would be more important in day trips.

In the third quarter results, Talgo says it spent 14.6 million € on unanticipated homologations in Russia. Do you know why?

Поезд идет быстрее чем раньше примерно на 5 часов.
Проект расписания. Если есть ошибки в тексте на немецком языке, буду благодарен за совет.

The train goes faster than before for about 5 hours.
The draft schedule. If there are errors in the German text, I would be grateful for advice.

Why is RZD using a stock image of Berlin Hauptbahnhof if the train departs from the Ostbahnhof?

And what's with the 45 minute stop in Terespol (?)? Gauge changing is done in Brest, right?
