Strizh high-speed train

Strizh train

On 1 June 2015, the new high-speed train Strizh made up of passenger carriages by Spain’s Patentes Talgo S.L. made its first journey on the Moscow — Nizhny Novgorod route, departing from Kursky railway station in Moscow.

An innovative passenger service technology was developed for this train, ensuring a high level of comfort and service while engaging the minimum number of crew.

The new technology provides for one train attendant servicing three second-class carriages with open-plan seating, three attendants servicing five sleeper carriages, and one attendant servicing each first-class carriage with open-plan seating. A total of eight train attendants are engaged to service one Strizh train.

From the start of operation, Strizh trains have carried 686.7 thousand passengers.

Trains are equipped with the GLONASS satellite navigation system providing for data transmission to and communication with FPC’s situation (traffic control) centre, and tracking of the travel speed and location of the train.
