These plans look somewhat fantastic for a Russian... Hope they'll be fullfilled!

Some legend
Brown - existing "upgraded" tracks 160-250.
Red- High-speed, 300+ rail, to be built, first stage.
This one color - High-speed, 300+ rail, to be built, second stage.
Green - "upgraded" tracks 160-200, to be built.
Blue - routes without infrastructures upgrades, but with express, non-stop, high-priority dispatched trains to be introduced.

The darker is background, the higher population density is.

RZD launches Moscow - Beijing tourist train

18 August 2011



RUSSIA: The Russian Railways Tour corporate and private travel services joint venture of RZD's Federal Passenger Company and Intourist launched an inaugural tourist train from Moscow to Beijing on August 15.

Designed for holidaymakers rather than people making an end to end journey, the trip takes 14 days and includes stops for guided tours in Kazan, Yekaterinburg, Novosibirsk, Krasnoyarsk, Irkutsk, Ulan-Ude, Ulaanbaatar and Erenhot, as well as a trip to Lake Baikal. Onboard services are provided in seven languages, and the entertainment programme includes musical evenings, films and local food.

A return trip will run from August 20 to September 4. The next journey will be announced in November, and depending on demand could run in August 2012, as RZD says August is 'the most comfortable time' to make the journey.

RZD and Transmashholding agree double-deck train concept

11 August 2011





RUSSIA: Transmashholding announced on August 11 that it had agreed terms of reference with Russian Railways for the development of 160 km/h double-deck trainsets for inter-regional services on routes of up to 700 km.

Production is expected to begin in 2014, with the first trains used on routes from Moscow to Tver, Yaroslavl, Vladimir, Ryazan, Tula and Kaluga.

Each train will comprise between six and 12 double-deck coaches from TMH's Tver works, top-and-tailed by single-cab 3 kV DC electric locomotives rated at 4 MW which will be built at TMH's Novocherkassk plant. According to TMH, the height of double-deck stock means there would be no roof or under-floor space for the electrical equipment needed for an electric multiple-unit.

The air-conditioned coaches will have three classes, business class featuring seat-back entertainment systems, standard class having a 2+2 seating arrangement and economy class 3+2. There will also be wheelchair facilities, a snackbar, space for bulky luggage and CCTV.

TMH expects shareholder Alstom to be a strategic partner in the project

Amazing photos, the Granit is the 2 bodies model or the 3 bodies?

Both variants. With 2 bodies train up to 7000 tons, with 3 bodies train up to 9000 tons (according to russian wiki).

Nope. VL85 is. VL15 also (which is more correct to compare, since they are both 3k DC). And GT1 is on par.

Big country requires large trains. Even more that the road infrastructure is not well developed (especially east of the Urals).
Does anyone know what is the "blue" pneumatic hose for? The red one is for braking. Yellow one for pneumatically powered systems in the cars. And this blue one?

1520 use two pneumatic hoses for braking - one provide braking, and the other prevents it. So in case of accidental decoupling brakes apply automaticly.

It sounds probably and logically.

But:
I have many times visited Europe most western 1520 line. The "LHS" Hrubieszów - Sławków (in Poland) from the border with Ukraine to Huta Katowice. Practically only Ukrainian wagons. (Ukraine has the same cars as other ex Soviet republics (including Russia). Locomotives are the M62 and some ТЭМ2 (both produced in the Soviet Union). But I've never seen a blue hose on them.
I was also in other countries with 1520 gauges. Latvia and Lithuania. You can see the blue hose, but no yellow one.
Then I thought that blue is the same as yellow because I've never seen them together.

What is the compatibility of rolling stock with a blue hose, to those without it, then?

Well, the yellow one is used only on locos that capable of MU (multiple units), it runs inside loco or multiple coupled locos only - VL-10 double-unit pneumatic scheme http://www.pomogala.ru/tormoza_images/vl10.jpg


Blue and red are obligatory on 1520, and..

...on this foto of LHS M62 all three a clearly visible - http://fotozajezdnia.pl/details.php?...63&mode=search

I'm not entirely convinced by this picture. The train is far away and the handle in shade or is dirty. On this photo, there is no blue hose. Only a pair of red ones and yellow ones.
When I'm at LHS next time for sure I'll look at them carefully.

I did Moscow-Beijing by Transsib this summer. Went back to my pictures,
and on all of them where the pneumatic couplers are clearly visible, I
see a blue (on the left) and a red (on the right) only. Some locs have two
blues and two reds. Some also have electric couplers. But I could not see
a single yellow-marked pneumatic coupler.

Are there conflicting reports about stations at airports in the new HSL Moscow-St. Petersburg?

Some say that the new line will serve the airports in the two cities (Pulkovo in St Petersburg and presumably Sheremetyevo in Moscow). Others say that it will connect with the express services to Moscow's airports (difficult, since at the moment they all leave from different stations in Moscow).

Does anyone have hard information, please?
