Russian Railways to establish joint venture to build Qazvin - Rasht - Astara railway line.

Russian Railways, the Iranian Railways Administration and Azeri Railways are to establish a joint venture for the construction of the railway line connecting Qazvin - Rasht - Astara and running between Azerbaijan and Iran.

The parties plan to set up the jv in the near future and will take part on an equal footing, contributing equal amounts of the charter capital.

In November 2008, Russian Railways carried out a feasibility study and sent it to the Iranian Railways Administration and Azeri Railways. At their last meeting in March in St. Petersburg, all three sides approved the study.

Currently, the feasibility study and the founding documents are being finalised in accordance with comments made by the parties at the meeting. Upon completion of this work, the parties will meet once again to decide on when the jv will be set up, the beginning of the project documentation and actual construction.

Zabaikalsky region experts $297m for Naryn-rail project in 2009
Authorities in Zabaikalsky region expect $267-297m from the federal funds for building the Naryn-Lukogan railway in 2009, sources in the administration reported today.
The move, projected to cost $1.4bn in total, is part of a wider $5bn public-private program by Norilsk Nickel and the RF government to develop deposits of copper, gold, silver and iron in the south east of the region.
Under the project, four mining and processing complexes and the railway are to be built.
Construction on the railway kicked off in November 2008.

Solikamsk – Arkhangelsk railroad design to cost $105m
The RF Investment Fund is to hand out $105m to authorities in Perm region in 2009 to be spent on feasibility study on construction of Solikamsk – Arkhangelsk railroad under Belkomur project, regional officials report.
The study is reportedly to take up to two years to undertake.
Construction of the rail road is scheduled to begin in 2012 and last up to six years.

Perm bypass railway project 'to cost $1.8bn'
Ekaterinburg-based Uralgiprotrans, the firm carrying out the feasibility study on construction of a bypass rail line in Perm krai, today said it estimated the cost of the project at $1.8bn.
The length of the new line, from Kukushtan (South of Perm) to Pibanshur (South-East) is to reach 223km, the report added.
Under plans, four stations and six loop tracks are to be set up.
The project timeframes have yet to be announced. The project payback term is estimated at around 15 years.

$8.3m unveiled for Ilyinsk – Uglegorsk design
Design work over the prospective 142-km Ilyinsk – Uglegorsk rail section will start this year already, RIA Novosti reported, citing regional officials.
Sakhalin will reportedly allocate $2.8m; the rest is expected from Russian Railways.
The launch of a design stage this year will make it possible to start construction in 2011 rather than 2015 as planned originally, the report said.
According to RIA, the new section will help increase coal shipments from coal-rick Uglegorsk mines to South Sakhalin’s nonfreezing ports of Kholmsk and Korsakov and further off to Asian-Pacific countries.

Railroad bridge eyed between Evreiskaya and China
Construction of a railroad bridge across the Amur River to connect Evreiskaya Autonomous Region and China’s Heilongjiang province is expected to kick off in August, Izvestia reported today, citing Evreiskaya regional officials.
An agreement about the project was reached during Evreiskaya Governor Nikolai Volkov’s visit to the province’s capital city of Harbin, Izvestia said.
As regional officials say, a Russian co-investor in the project is Rubikon. The company expects to start exports of cast iron and iron-ore concentrate to China as soon as the bridge is commissioned in 2012, they specified.
An investment amount has yet to be announced.
Construction of the bridge and related infrastructure is expected to create 2,000 new jobs, Izvestia said.

I love this train, but does anyone know why it has a weight of 667 tonnes with only two cars more than other velaros which weigh 425-450 tonnes? What's with all the extra weight? This train is heavier than the acela meter for meter

It's also wider and can work in extreme climate with very high and very low temperatures.

Looking at the two images again I find it interesting but is the dumper fixed on the outter side of the wheel?

Although this is pure speculation but if the dumper is as I suspect place out side the wheel then it is a simple design flaw since weight of the train is place on both the inner side transmitted from the bogie and outer side through dumpers of the wheel.
The axle will act like a lever and the wheel will be the fulcrum point. The problem is downward force will act at both sides focusing the stregnth applied at the fulcrum and attached axle connection.

I figured it was because of the climate but the difference is huge.

@Aokromes
This train is actualy snow removal equipment. The snow is taken in at the front side and transport to the back, where it is stored in the two cars behind. On suitable places the snow get dumped. The designation you have to look for is СМ2М. The roadnumber is 1898.
