Mobile Exhibition Complex Makes A Stop In Zelenograd

Posted on December 20, 2011 by

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.

  2. Tovarich_Volk says:

    The Train simulators used by American and Canadian Railroads to train Engineers are essentially a vastly built upon version of MS Train Sim. Is the Russian Simulator also the same?

    That would be a cool job.

    Excellent exhibition in the train. Was there during a stop in Abakan.

    I’m just wondering why they didn’t advertise more. In Abakan there was no advertisment at all about arrival of the train. Then the train was parked away from the main station, barely noticable and to find.
    If I wouldn’t read about it on ER then we would never know.

    In exhibitiontrainphotos-27, TALGO refers to the way the wheel assemblies are attached to the train. Two bodies share 1 wheel assembly by being attached to opposites sides of the framework. The pictured design is called PENDOLINO, an Italian design where the train bodies are mounted by a pivot at the top. As the car speeds through a curve, the bodies swing out making the ride smoother for the passengers. The change specific to Russia is the wheels & axles. The normal span is 56.5 inches; Russia uses 60 inches. The Russian version handles both gauges.

    Actually, TALGO is an Spanish railroad equipment maker settled in Northern Sapin. They have been producing engines and carriages of the best quality since the end of the Spanish civil war.The system depicted is currently been used in Spain,as two different widths are used:the european and their own.
    By the way: TALGO stands for “Tren Articulado Ligero Goicoechea Oriol”,”Goicoechea Oriol light Articulate Train”
