    • Nope they are basically steel boxes with the trucks bolted onto a frame. It is very costly in both wear and tear on engines and in the amounts of electricity to move heavy passenger trains. Goods trains in Russia are in a separate class from the passenger trains. They use bigger more robust rolling stock and more powerful engines for goods. It is natural.

  3. What a backward country. In the west we use supercomputer simulation and 3D modelling without wasting resources. No wonder Russia doesnt even have a supercomputer to do such studies and test.

    • Is it because of those supercomputers that in the “Western world” trains collide killing people, brand-new Big Dig tunnel ceilings in Boston collapse again with fatalities, bridges fall, the list may go on… And all this at cost at least 10 times higher than what russians spend… and no collisions whatsoever with metro operating since 1930… And since when India became part of the West?
