The longest train in the world launched in Russia
Today I want to tell you about the longest train in the world, which has become – a dual structure of Peregrine. His trials have already begun between St. Petersburg and Novgorod, and in August 2014 such trains will run between Moscow and St. Petersburg. Read and see more.(25 photos)
March 3 at 4:00 depot “Metallostroy” Peregrine offers two new testing, where they become part of a single dvadtsativagonny
Who went on Sapsane from Moscow to St. Petersburg and back, know that you need to buy tickets in advance – they sold out instantly. Tickets demand, implemented by almost 100%, so passengers complain – everyone wants to ride in comfort. Dual composition should solve this problem.
March 3 at 9:30 am at the station Uglovka Novgorod region two new Peregrine were joined together, and then within a few hours were tested at different speeds on the stretch Uglovka – Okoulovka.rapprochement Go!
Brigade NW DSS Railways worried before the test
All tested not only in automatic, but in manual mode

Here – in Uglovka – five years ago passed the test first “Peregrine Falcon”, three years ago – “Allegro” (St. Petersburg – Helsinki), and last year – “Swallows”, which served passengers in the Olympic Sochi. Why here? While it is the only part of the railway in Russia, allowing speeds of up to 250 km / h
The study involved two teams – a German, from the company Siemens, develop and deliver a new model in the Railways Peregrine – Veraro Rus 2. And the Russian – North-West Railways Directorate-speed communications, which in operation and will continue to be high-speed trains. Specialists check them for electrical compatibility – to train during acceleration and braking did not give harmful interference to radio to work Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, radio. In general, contact.
“Now, two trains connected together. Task – to re-run all the measurements. The path of the installed instrumentation, we passed. If some will go off-scale sensors, will be amended. One group of experts to monitor the parameters, the other – conducts measurements along the route. ” train rushing at 220 km / hCamera barely manages to capture a group of workers who commit measurements:
There will be other tests. Railroad will still check the brake system: after two trains – it is a double weight.As well as other parameters. But it will be later. Meanwhile suggest walk around yet empty wagons updated composition. Find differences from the previous version?
Economy Class. Seats will be in a protective case until commissioning. Nearly every seat in the entire train – bags. Their weight – simulates loading composition. Just as in normal flight.
VIP-zone. Branch with four seats, near the driver’s cab, locked the door, fully redeemed, adapted for talks
