I'm interested in going from Slovakia by Transmanchurian railway to Beijing, I need only oneway ticket, what's normal/cheapest price of one way ticket from Moscow - Beijing in summer (august)? I was counting with something like 250-300EUR + russian visas and heard it's much cheaper buy these tickets in our train station in Slovakia than in Moscow, but if it will be more screw it, will rather buy airplane ticket (round trip (which I don't need) from 400E) and skip Russia completely this time (and save money and hassle from russian visas).
For all your train travel questions, this is the best site in the whole wide world.

Russia: Sapsans to connect Chelyabinsk and Yekaterinburg

The cities of Chelyabinsk and Yekaterinburg will soon be connected by high-speed Sapsan trains. It will cut the time of travel between the two destinations from 3 to only one hour.

Currently Sapsan operates only on the railway line from Moscow to St. Petersburg. Works on the Chelyabinsk – Yekaterinburg section have already begun and should be finished around 2015.

Russia owns 8 Sapsan trains, produced by the German company Siemens, which are able to reach a speed of 250 km/h.

How long should it take for Sapsans to travel between Moscow and Yekaterinburg?

Looks like Moscow-Yekaterinburg takes about 25 hours now, so an average of 60km/h...even with a three-fold average speed increase (likely quite expensive), it would take at least 8 hours, so unless they would plan to use Chinese-style high-speed sleeper trains, it would still take too long...

What might be feasible would be a reduction to 12-15 hours, which would translate as one night in a regular sleeper train, not a bad prospect

There are no such short-term plans at the moment. The first HSR line will be built between Moscow and SPb by 2015. Next conventional line for upgrade is not decided yet.

Beijing-Shanghai is 1463 km, and even without HSR, they have lowered the trip time to under 10 hours, both by day and at night.

Precisely what is the distance from Moscow to Sochi before building the HSR, and how long shall the trip take by 2014?

Moscow - Niznij Novgorod HSR should enter before Chelyabinsk -Yekaterinburg line.

And at the end of 2010 HSR from Helsinki - St Petersburg line will be launched with Alstom highspeed trains.

Moscow - Sochi (as operated at the moment) is 1956 km - so it should be comparable to Beijing - Guangzhou line in China, part of which (Wuhan - Guangzhou) is already operational. Sleeper CRH that are now running on Bejing-Shanghai line will be put on it after completion.

a major move in the East - West rail freight business:

Belarus, Poland: Train of ITL Polska entered Brest

Yesterday evening, January 21, the first test train of the private rail freight operator ITL Polska crossed the Polish-Belarus border and entered the city of Brest.

The train carried 1100 tons of coke in 24 coal-wagons from the Czech Republic through Poland to Belarus. According to ITL, the 311D locomotive met with a great interest in Brest, as it was the first such modern vehicle on the Belarusian tracks.

On the Czech side, the partner for the transport was CD Cargo. The train’s final destination is Minsk.
