About Finland-Russia line, is there facilities for Fins to go to Russia? What about visa. This can be astrong brake to commercial development. And what about other EU nationals. Would be great not to need visa to travel... Or something simplified like in Egypt, you pay 10 € and you are in...

Too bad... Nowadays, there could be a simplified procedure... It would really help. Controls could remain at borders, but Visa. What is visa but a tax... This is last century system. Nowadays, we have computers and internet... Police can check anything on anybody...

This would help to make this new train line cost-effective. Visa is a brake to tourism and travel...

Russia: RZD signs partnership agreement with Rusnano

Russian Railways President Vladimir Yakunin signed an agreement in Moscow today with the general director of Rusnano, Anatoly Chubais, on strategic partnership in introducing and commercializing nanotechnology in railway transportation.

The agreement sets out a mechanism for introducing and promoting innovation, including nanotechnology products, in the railway sector.

Work under the agreement will allow RZD to meet rising quality demands in transport services, and increase transport volumes, freight tonnage, and track speeds.

Under the agreement, RZD and Rusnano will determine the most promising areas in which nanotechnology products can be applied, and the regions and company subdivisions in which to implement comprehensive projects.

The companies plan to develop a system for statistical monitoring of the effectiveness of nanotechnology, in order to create an information base for management decision-making. In line with the agreement, the parties also intend to combine resources to draw up regulatory and legal documents aimed at improving Russian legislation in the innovation sphere.

As long as Russians need a visa for EU, EU-inhabitants will need a visa for Russia.

From 5 April, 2010, Russian Railways is increasing Sapsan high-speed train services between Moscow & St. Petersburg.

Due to high demand, from 5 April, 2010 Russian Railways is increasing Sapsan high-speed train services between Moscow and St. Petersburg from three to five in each direction.

In January 2010, 78,910 passengers travelled on Sapsan trains, with numbers rising in February to 81,488 passengers, an increase of 3.27% on January.

From 5 April, 2010 the following timetable for Sapsan services will operate:

* Train No. 152 Moscow - St. Petersburg departing at 6:45, arriving at 10:40. Daily service, except 1.01.2011, straight through, travel time 3:55
* Train No. 156 Moscow - St. Petersburg departing at 13:00, arriving at 17:45. Daily service with stops at Tver 14:13-14:15, Vishny Volochek 15:01-15:02, Bologoe 15:25-15:26, Okylovka 15:57-15:58, travel time 4:45
* Train No. 160 Moscow - St. Petersburg departing at 16:30, arriving at 20:45. Daily service with stops at Tver 17:40-17:42, Bologoe 18:41-18:42, travel time 4:15
* Train No. 162 Moscow - St. Petersburg departing at 16:45, arriving at 21:00. Daily service with stops at Tver 17:55-17:57, Bologoe 18:56-18:57, travel time 4:15
* Train No. 166 Moscow - St. Petersburg departing at 19:45, arriving at 23:40. Daily service, except 31.12.2010 and 01.01.2011, straight through, travel time 3:55
* Train No. 151 St. Petersburg – Moscow departing at 6:45, arriving at 10:40. Daily service, except 1.01.2011, straight through, travel time 3:55
* Train No. 155 St. Petersburg – Moscow departing at 13:00, arriving at 17:45. Daily service with stops at Okylovka 14:36-14:37, Bologoe 15:09-15:10, Vishny Volochek 15:31-15:32, Tver 16:19-16:21, travel time 4:45
* Train No. 161 St. Petersburg – Moscow departing at 15:00, arriving at 19:15. Daily service until 30.05.2010 with stops at Bologoe 16:57-16:58, Tver 18:01-18:03, travel time 4:15
* Train No. 159 St. Petersburg – Moscow departing at 15:15, arriving at 19:30. Daily service with stops at Bologoe 17:12-17:13, Tver 18:16-18:18, travel time 4:15

The departure time for the Sapsan evening trains from Moscow and St. Petersburg has been changed from 19:00 to 19:45 in line with passenger demand.

The service will be carried out by six Peregrine Falcon trains.

Due to the increasing number of long-distance passenger and suburban trains on October Railways during the spring and summer season, as well as scheduled summer maintenance on infrastructure, the times of the Peregrine trains are being slightly altered.

Well, as far as I know it's not possible to gain such speed on existing line. And the new railway line is still only in project stage.

Is there any train capable of running at 400km/h in regular service? And is there a signalling system allowing such speeds?

They are going to build another high-speed line, because existing one has limited capacity. They currently use Siemens Velaro trains and regular track and regular speed for them above 200 km/h. So if they build special high-speed line without all those suburban trains and cargo train traffic, technically they can reach that speed but that will not be a regular speed. They are planning to use Alstom's TGV trains, they cost even cheaper than Siemens. And I suppose there will be enough passenger traffic for them because it seems that current "Sapsan" route is popular in spite of high ticket prises, they even recently increased a number of trains to 5 per day.

He wasn't asking, but just bumped the thread.


The project is still in P phase. It should be completed by the end of the year. Then all the information will be announced. The line will be 400 kmph compliant. Yet it doesn't mean that trains will run at 400 kmph at the launch. AGV is just one of contenders.
