The longest train of the world will run in Russia from August this year. Successful testing of the new 20-car Peregrine culminated last Monday on the railway between St. Petersburg and Novgorod. Since August, train services will benefit residents of Moscow and St. Petersburg. Take a look at this miracle passenger! Look further.
March 3 at 4:00 depot "Metallostroy" Peregrine offers two new test, where they become part of a single dvadtsativagonny
Who went to the Sapsan from Moscow to St. Petersburg and back, know what you need to buy tickets in advance - they sold out instantly. Tickets demand, implemented by almost 100%, so the passengers complained - everyone wants to ride in comfort. The 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 for several hours were tested at different speeds on the stretch Uglovka - Okulovka.
Come on closer!
Brigade NW DSS Railways worried before the test
All checked not only in automatic, but in manual mode
The historical moment

Here - in Uglovka - five years ago, were the first test of "Sapsan", three years ago - "Allegro" (St. Petersburg - Helsinki), and last year - "Swallows", which serves passengers in the Olympic Sochi. Why here? So far this is the only section of the railway in Russia, allowing speeds of up to 250 km / h.
The study involved two teams - German, from the company Siemens, develop and deliver a new model in the Railways Peregrine - Veraro Rus 2. And the Russian - North-Western Directorate Rapid Transit Railways, which is in operation and will continue to be high-speed trains. Experts examined them elektrosovmestimost - to train during acceleration and braking not betrayed the interference in the radio to operate Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, radio. In general, communication.
"Now, two trains are joined together. The task - to carry out all the measurements again. On the route installed instrumentation, we passed. If any of the sensors will go off-scale, there will be changes. One group of experts monitoring the performance, the other - carries out measurements along a route ».
The train hurtling at a speed of 220 km / h. The camera barely manages to secure a group of workers engaged on measurements:
There will be other tests. Railroad still have to check the brake system: after two trains - a double weight. As well as other parameters. But it will be later.
In the meantime, I suggest a walk on the still empty wagons updated composition. Spot the difference from the previous version?
Economy class. The seats will be in a protective case until commissioning. Nearly every seat in the entire train - bags. Their weight - simulates the load composition. Just as in normal flight.
VIP-zone. Branch with four seats near the driver's cab, closed the door, fully redeemed, adapted to negotiate

The train has been successfully tested and returned to the depot
