Ah OK. It's strange place, nothing else like that. Journeys on those trains can take several days and retaurant cars are a bit expensive for ordinary people. So they take days of food with them and live off the samovar for any hot plate or cup. Food is available from small platform shops in every major station too. In older cars you can still find samovars heated by small coal furnace. A place like no one else...

Construction of the railway bypassing Ukraine

The construction of the railway is continuing, bypassing Ukraine. This is the site from the Voronezh station Zhuravka to the Rostov city of Millerovo. He bypasses the territory of the Luhansk region, which is under the control of the Kiev authorities. Representatives of Russian Railways say that with the introduction of a new railway section, the capacity of trains in the direction of the Black Sea resorts and ports can grow.
It is reported that by 2018 will be carried out the reconstruction and construction of new railways on the direction of Kotelnikovo-Tikhoretskaya-Krymskaya. After completion of all works, the capacity of the direction will increase to 153 pairs of trains per day.
In addition to the direct construction of the railroad from Voronezh to the Rostov region, the construction of associated infrastructure and transport facilities is underway. So, construction work is under way on the construction of automobile overpasses over the railway, which will allow not to stop traffic on roads where the railway crosses automobile directions in the two mentioned areas. Drainage systems are being created, new stations on the route Zhuravka-Millerovo are put into operation.

Creation of SCHOM-2000 is the product of 4 years of work by the designers, engineers and employees of PTK Group.
One of its unique features is multifunctionality, i.e. it can be used both as a unified maximum capacity complex, and each section can be used individually to solve local goals.

“Benefits from the introduction of the new technologies on the basis of a universal complex for the ballast section, including SCHOM-2000, is 34% greater than traditional technologies, – says Svyatoslav Afanasyev, PTK Group’s Development Director. – Therefore, its operation will allow the infrastructure owner to significantly reduce both tracks repair costs, as well as their routine maintenance costs.”

A dynamic demonstration of the International Fair of Railway Equipment and Technologies EXPO 1520 will for the first time present a dual-system (i.e. using both DC as AC) electric locomotive 2EV120 Knyaz Vladimir in motion.

The locomotive is unparalleled in Russia and capable of hauling heavy freight trains weighing seven to nine tons at temperatures ranging from -55C to +45C. It is designed to work on long railway sections (2000-3000 km) of CIS countries with the 1520 mm gauge.

Tests.

A freight train from India to Russia, passing through Azerbaijan is planned to start running by the end of this August. RIA Novosti was told this during an interview with Javid Gurbanov, Head of Azerbaijan Railways.

This train route is part of the “North-South” project. In August, a freight train from Mumbai will arrive at the Iranian port of Bandar Abbas, and then travel through Astara in Azerbaijan to its final destination in Moscow.

The “North-South” project is a multi-modal freight transport route with a total length of over 7,000 kilometers from Helsinki to the port of Mumbai, passing through Russia, Azerbaijan and Iran to India and Southeast Asia. During the first stage of this corridor, they are planning to transport five million tons of cargo annually, and in the future – more than 10 million tons of cargo each year.
https://in.rbth.com/news/2016/06/09/...-august_601751

Russia has agreed to start substantive elaboration work for implementation of the North–South transport corridor after talks with the foreign ministers of Azerbaijan and Iran. The corridor will be routed along the western coast of the Caspian Sea, from Russia to Iran through Azerbaijan, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said.

“This involves working with the participation of the Ministries of Transport, which have to look at the technical and financial parameters of such a project. This also involves interaction between the customs and consular services, and we have agreed on this today,” Lavrov said.

“We believe that these projects will speed up cargo transit. We are discussing the final details,” said Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif. “We believe that this cooperation serves the interests of the peoples of Iran, Azerbaijan, and Russia and, of course, the interests of the entire region,” added the head of Iran’s Foreign Ministry.

The transport corridor from Russia to Iran, through Azerbaijan is an important part of a larger North–South project. The project was stalled when Western sanctions were imposed against Iran. With the lifting of the sanctions on Iran, this project has again become relevant.
The North–South transport corridor is a route from St. Petersburg to the Mumbai (Bombay) Port in India. It is an estimated 7,200 kilometres long. The corridor is aimed at transporting goods from India, Iran and other Persian Gulf countries to Russia via the Caspian Sea and on towards Northern and Western Europe.
he current flow of goods from India towards the European part of the Russian Federation happens through maritime transport. From St. Petersburg, the cargo has to sail around the entire western part of Europe and through the Suez Canal. As a result, the estimated travel time from the Jawaharlal Nehru Port (Mumbai) to Moscow is around 40 days.

The new route; from St. Petersburg to Moscow, then to Astrakhan (Russia), Baku (Azerbaijan) and Bandar Abbas (port city on the Persian Gulf in southern Iran) to Mumbai – is multimodal. It involves the use of marine, rail and road transport, and will cut transport times by over 50%, Russian Railways Logistics noted. In the long term this time can be reduced to just 14 days. The new route will eliminate the need to carry goods through the Suez Canal, which is not only overloaded, but also very expensive.

In February this year, Russian Railways, Azerbaijan Railways, and ADY Express, within the framework of the North–South project, agreed attract cargo flows to the Azerbaijani and Russian Railways through the organization of transport between India - Iran - Azerbaijan – Russia, and vice versa. The construction of this route should be completed in 2017. An agreement about this transport corridor was signed by Russia, India and Iran in 2000, and was ratified in 2002.

“In addition to the sea route from St. Petersburg, cargo travels to Iran also through ports in Turkmenistan and Kazakhstan; these routes being convenient for consignors and consignees located in the Urals and Siberia. In addition, there is an option of transportation via the road network of Azerbaijan,” said Ivan Andrievsky, chairman of the board of directors of the 2K Engineering Company. “However, direct rail transportation means the reduction of travel times, and thus provides good prospects for the development of trade relations, not only between Russia and Iran, but also between the countries of Eastern Europe and Iran,” added Andrievsky.

“We are now shipping cargo to Iran either across the Caspian Sea or across the ocean to the south of Iran; via St. Petersburg or via Novorossiysk, whichever is more convenient for the shippers. However, for Iran, it is actually more profitable to receive loads in the north; either from the Caspian Sea, or by rail, because the majority of people in Iran live in the northern part of the country. In the south, there is the Port of Bandar Abbas, and the oil fields, but few people live down there,” said Alexey Bezborodov, CEO of the Infranews Agency, explaining the relevance of the new route.

To realize this route along the west coast of the Caspian Sea, a new railway line will have to be built; from Qazvin (Iran) to Astara (Iran) to Astara (Azerbaijan). It will have to link the Azerbaijani city of Astara to the Iranian cities of Astara, Rasht, and Qazvin.

Construction of the railway section Qazvin - Rasht was completed in 2015, but construction of the Rasht (Iran) - Astara section is only at the development stage.

“The railway line from Qazvin to Astara is an infrastructure project experiencing typical delays. The main road route passes through Iran. The section was planned for completion in 2015, but then was postponed to 2016,” said Andrievsky. However, the construction work is on.
A railway bridge between Azerbaijan and Iran has been opened earlier in April, Azerbaijan’s Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov said on Thursday. He also said they plan to complete the railway connections between Azerbaijan and Iran’s railways by the end of 2016.
“This is a complex infrastructure project, with many of tunnels, bridges and difficult mountainous areas. Therefore, problems with the implementation of this project were to be expected. However, contractors are saying that this route is now at a high level of completion, so we can expect the railway to be completed, and in the nearest future,” said Andrievsky.

According to various sources, the estimated capacity of the railway, during the first phase, should be around four to ten million tons of cargo, and this will gradually increase to between 15 and 20 million tons per year.

As for the pricing policy, the question here is not in the fees charged, Bezborodov said.

“There are no political problems here either. The sanctions against Iran were removed. For our Southern and Volga Regions, Azerbaijan is quite an adequate direction for trade with Iran,” added Bezborodov.

The project can be implemented quickly and without significant additional costs because the infrastructure has already been built.

“The railway line on the territory of Iran itself is not yet complete, but that is no hindrance to us, we can use trucks for transportation there. In Azerbaijan, everything has already been built. All investments have been made during the last 15 years,” said Bezborodov. “In fact, all that remains is simply to launch the new route, to agree on the logistics, fees, customs and other procedures, which the three countries want to work on now.”

The new corridor is important for Iranian and Russian plans to increase their volume of trade. Iran is primarily interested in buying Russian grain. Almost the entire volume of the Russian grain exports now heads to Iran. However, in terms of diversifying the range of products, by train one can also transport food products, including vegetables and fruits, as well as industrial goods, oil and oil products. Russia can begin supplying its own vehicles to Iran, where Chinese cars are now being sold; around 130-150 thousand annually. Given the large number of joint projects, in particular in the nuclear sphere, a new route can easily become fully loaded with cargo from Russia and back.
