Russian Railways implements project “Trans-Sib in Seven Days”.

Russian Railways is systematically implementing a series of technological measures to ensure the fast delivery of containers from Russia’s Far Eastern ports to its western border. The project is called “Trans-Sib ion Seven Days”.

In February of this year, Russian Railways has drawn up a schedule of motion experienced container train station Vladivostok – station Perovo.

According to the timetable set earlier, the train should take 7 days 14 hours 55 minutes, but due to an increase in traffic speeds to 1289 km a day, the Company has reduced the time by 10 hours 24 minutes. The actual running time of a pilot run was 7 days 4 hours 31 minutes.

On 21 February, 2009 a further pilot run of a container train was planned for this route.

According to the timetable for container trains in 2008/09, the average speed for the route has been set at 825 km per day. In January 2009, the average speed of the container trains increased to 898 km per day, 73 km per day more that the set figure.

Yakunin meets delegation of Spain’s Ministry of Economic Development.

On February 23, Vladimir Yakunin, President of Russian Railways, met Magdalena Alvarez Arsala, Spain’s Minister of Economic Development, for a round table held in Moscow to discuss the Company’s work under winter conditions, the development of high-speed transport in Russia and rail freight.

“The visit to Russia will allow us to exchange experience. Russian Railways has a lot of practical experience of working in winter conditions, which is of great interest to Spain after the recent heavy snowfall. In turn, Spain is the European leader in constructing high-speed railways, so we can help Russia with our experience in developing and operating these kinds of services,” said Magdalena Alvarez Arsala after the meeting.

The two sides also discussed the use of permanent trains equipped with a Spanish system capable of automatically changing the width of the wheel pairs to suit the different track gauges to be used for high-speed passenger traffic on the Moscow – Berlin route.

The Spanish delegation, which visited Russia between 21 and 24 February, included representatives from the management of ADIF, the division of Spanish railways responsible for infrastructure, and the Spanish rail operator RENFE Operadora.

On February 21, the Spanish delegation visited St. Petersburg and took part in the ceremony to mark the commissioning of the railway bridge LITER A through the Obvodnyi Kanal on the Moscow line of Oktober Railways.

The delegation also viewed rail facilities of East-Siberian Railways in Irkutsk Region on February 24 in order to familiarise themselves with Russian Railways’ work during the winter months and meet members of the Administration of Irkutsk Region.

Hochgeschwindigkeitszug Sapsan auf erster Testfahrt

St. Petersburg. Unweit von Petersburg hat der neue, von Siemens konstruierte Hochgeschwindigkeitszug seine erste Testfahrt absolviert. Die Probe der Bremssysteme verlief laut Russischer Eisenbahn ausgezeichnet.

[…]
German: http://www.aktuell.ru/russland/news/...hrt_23821.html

On 28th February the Sapsan has been tested first. Test took place in the Leningradski rayon between Lyuban and Metallostroi. The train reached a velocity of 140 km/h. They tested the brakes. Everything worked fine.
In the next weeks the train will reach a speed up to 275 km/h.

Container train traverses Siberia in under 7 days.

A pilot container train operated by Russian Railways covered the 9,244 km on the Trans-Siberian route between Vladivostok and Bekasovo station near Moscow in less than 7 days, taking just 6 days 20 hours and 35 minutes. The normal transit time for fast container trains on this route is 12 days.

A feature of the pilot train is guaranteed travel without breakdowns, thus dispensing with the usual regular technical inspection checks necessary over such a large distance but which reduce trvel time.

The rolling stock was made ready at Technical Inspection Point at Nakhodka East. After arriving at the platform in Nahodka for loading, it proceeded to the Vladivostok Sea Trading Port, and following the technical inspection check (21 February) left for Moscow, arriving at its destination in the evening of February 28.

The pilot train included an experimental wagon laboratory to test the train’s brakes. The data collected will help decide whether to introduce regular services on the route.

I doubt Sapsan will go to Sochi... It's over 1400km route with very outdated infrastructure. Just few sections allow to go at 160kph max. Pendolino can be used on this direction.
