positive aspect of it is that you can open the windows, which beats all
airco if you ask me. There were a few power sockets in the gangway but
none in the compartments.
Unlike the Russian K19/20, on K3/4, power sockets are in compartments, at least for the first class passengers.

Must be new then... When I was on train 3 from UB to Beijing in summer 2011,
there were no power sockets available at all in those old chinese cars. But I
was in Kupe, not SW.

It's not new. The train has been 30 years old. And the plan of the deployment of the new generation has been postponed.

Big event in the field of railway construction.
The last rails in a railway line are laid
This highway is constructed in 12 years in the most difficult conditions of Siberia and in places with severe climate.Она connected the BAM highway to Yakutia.
The general is long made 1250 km! ( first part opened in 2008 -442km and last part-808 km ) On it more than 170 bridges and viaducts are constructed.

Yes but for the time being, the rail line still arrives on the wrong side of the
Lena river, right ? Iakutsk inhabitants must cross the water in order to get
to the trains... You can cross on the ice in winter, by boat in summer, but
there are those few months in between where the river cannot be traversed
at all. How is this being sorted out ? Will there be a bridge, a tunnel, or what ?

Isn't this meant mostly as a freight line for mines with passengers being a secondary concern? To get to any bigger city in a reasonable amount of time from Yakutsk you'd need to fly anyway.

Really the main objective of the railway transportation of the goods and not passengers . It will push the whole region and will facilitate the export of natural riches along these 1250 km . And there-timber ,coal ,gold ,marble and granite and other

That would certainly be the case within our western culture, as it would be
for any other long distance line in Russia and the other ex-CIS countries. But
when you travel there, you realize that the passenger trains remain heavily
used. And not only on the trans-siberian line... I do not know why, may be
flying remains unaffordable over there for most people ? In any case, if the
objective was only to transport freight, a bridge into the city would not be
considered. In a harsh environment like this, building such a bridge will be
extremely difficult and expensive. Even if they found a place where the river
is narrower, it will still be 2 or 3 km long...

Another take on the matter:

Amur – Yakutsk railway nears completion

RUSSIAN construction company Transstroy announced on August 15 that it expects to complete construction on the final section of the Amur – Yakutsk Mainline (AYAM) in the Far East of the country by the end of next month.

Ironically, this disaster are caused by technological works for installing extra mainline track for increasing capacity...
Bat doing so at Friday evening is a really dumb idea.
