In the next two years.
RZD plans to revise the device of reserved cars and is considering the option of replacing the already existing shelves with capsular-type seats. About this “Rossiyskaya Gazeta” said the head of the company Oleg Belozerov.
New cars, presumably, will appear in the next two years. How the capsules may look, in the Russian Railways is not shown.
According to Belozerov, in the case of capsules the passengers will have an “individual space”. He also noted that the Russian Railways received proposals on a “space-transformer”, where it would be possible to adapt the place for themselves.
On the basis of the principle of forming a common or second-class car, in the common space without a compartment personal comfort zones will be created.
In July, it became known from the RZD development project that the company plans to stop buying second-class cars until 2025. Then it was reported that the compositions of the new type will be double-car couplings with the transition.
