The Russian Railways public company plans to turn out nearly 100 high-speed trains by 2015
The Russian Railways public company plans to turn out nearly 100 high-speed trains by 2015 within the framework of its agreement with Germany's Siemens concern. This was disclosed January 4 to the Ekho Moskvy radio station live by Alexei Yemelyanovich, first deputy director of the Russian Railroads company's long-range passenger-traffic department. Russian Railways and Siemens have signed an agreement for the production of high-speed trains, which will be traveling at up to 250 kmph. Plans are in place to assemble the first such train by 2007. It will operate between Moscow and St. Petersburg because that route already has the required infrastructure, Yemelyanovich added. These trains will eventually operate along other routes, as well as between Moscow and other cities with a population of more than one million, Yemelyanovich stressed. Quite possibly, they will also run along the Trans-Siberian Mainline, Yemelyanovich noted in conclusion.
