Last week, the so called mobile exhibition complex of the Russian Railways opened its doors to its visitors in Zelenograd. On the whole, the train has been travelling in Russia for three months and has visited over 50 cities and villages of Russia.
So, let’s find out what it can surprise us with.
Visitors were transported to the depot where the train was located by bus.
‘The Russian Railways. Mobile exhibition complex’.
This model of an office of the chief of a railway station of the 19th century opens the exhibition.
Then they show technologies of the future, ‘Sapsan’ and ‘Allegro’ high-speed train models.
‘Sapsan’ by Siemens coveres the distance from Moscow to Saint Petersburg in just 3 hours and 45 minutes. Its maximum speed is 300 kmh.
They plan to release this ‘Lastochka’ electric train in 2013 to serve guests of the World Student Games which are going to take place in Kazan. By 2014, it will be introduced in Sochi for the Olympic Games.
In the next car you will find models of passenger and freight cars and service equipment.
