The Russian Railways Company has launched a new project, a mobile exhibition complex where leading foreign and Russian companies presented their innovative projects. On August 6 2011 the train left its starting ground in Saint-Petersburg and went to Vologda city where it was open for guests from 10.30 AM till 7.30 PM. Let’s visit the nanotrain and view the exhibits presented.
The complex consists of 3 service and 8 exhibition wagons. Each of them is devoted to some innovative project or company.
Railway attributes used by the chief of the station (19-20 centuries)
Objects popular in the end of the 19th and in the beginning of the 20th centuries are followed by modern train models like Alegro manufactured by Alstom company.
Electric freight and passenger locomotives and railway transport of any kind are included into the next exposition.
Lighting of the trains is worth mentioning as it is made according to the diode technology and can change the color.
All interactive models are beautiful.
Railway electrical substation room.
Rocket launch facilities in Baikonur.
Military Railroad Missile Complex.
Changing wheel pairs at the border.
Modern railway station.
The model has not only railway lines and facilities but surrounding infrastructure as well.
Arrival of a modern train to the station.
Exhibition of novel technologies related to station equipment. Russian Railways have been practicing seamless railing for a long time already making train movement absolutely noiseless.
Much attention is paid to lighting technologies. Regular lamps are substituted for diode ones. Diode lamps are much more expensive but are brighter and have longer operation life.
Automatic doors in trains are opened when the button is pressed.
Virtual room of train operation was the most popular one. Here everyone could operate the train in conditions that were similar to real ones.
Even kids could cope with the task well.
Products developed by ROSNANO, Rosatom and other companies were also presented here. They included modern projects of nuclear reactor production, their cooling systems, complexes preserving warmth and energy, solar batteries. These things are about to reach the market.
A 3D movie devoted to 170th anniversary of Russian Railways was shown in the last wagon.
