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.

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.

  1. I wish America had more trains. Just about the only one we DO have, can’t survive without taxpayer money being shoveled into it, and the ticket prices are STILL too expensive!

    We used to have a LOT of trains and trolley cars in the cities. Then the bus and tire manufacturers came in and in some places, ripped up the rails overnight and installed bus lines. And we haven’t had a breath of fresh air since.

    • Train tickets are expensive in the States, funny… I was just looking at fares from Staunton, VA to D.C. and back, it’s a beautiful trip. The food on the dining menus wasn’t too high, I was surprised by that.

      Yes they ripped up the rails only to realize it was a good thing. They just completed a lite rail in South Hampton Roads, Virginia from Norfolk, to Virginia Beach. They have a real trolly running in Olde Towne (historic district) in Portsmouth and I think they also have a “fake” trolly at the beach running down the strip. You’re right pollution is not good here with all the buses, cars and trucks.

  3. That little girl in glasses is very serious about driving the train. She’s cute.

    Okay kinda off topic- It’s funny how many men get fat bellies when their wives are pregnant, looks like they’re both expecting. My exhusband did that both times I was pregnant then he lost it after I had the babies. I’ve seen other men do it too. 🙂

  4. Nanotren! Ce pot sa spun?Viitorul trebuie sa fie al transportului in comun.
    Ce se intimpla in Romania? De cind e la conducere o mutanta genetico-fascista,care fura banii poporului si apoi zice ca e criza,se desfiiteaza caile ferate,toti isi cumpara cite o rabla,nu se incurajeaza transportul in comun.
