    Russia to Build 1st High-Speed Train in 2027 - Company, 07.08.2024.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Russia's first high-speed train will be produced in 2027, connecting Moscow and St. Petersburg, Anton Zubikhin, deputy director general at Sinara Group, told Sputnik on Monday.

    "The first electric train will be produced in 2027. It will go for certification, so that we receive a conformity certificate in 2028," he said.

    Sinara Group's rail transport branch will make 43 electric trains to service a new high-speed rail between Moscow and St. Petersburg, which is currently under construction, Zubikhin said.

    State rail company, Russian Railways, signed an agreement with Sinara for the production of two high-speed trains in April. The trains are expected to be delivered by late March 2028, according to the contract.

    This seems way too quick. Did they license Chinese rail technology or something?

    Building the straight track is one thing, but you also need modern automated signaling systems, and the locomotives and cars themselves.

    Still it seems like a nice addition to Russia's transport system. It will also take away some of the pressure on the airplane industry to deliver Russian planes in time.

    All these elements are currently being developed in Russia. You don't think Rossi doesn't have that kind of technology, do you?
    The photo shows the Soviet high-speed train ER-200, with a cruising speed of 200 km/h, developed in the seventies.
    Do you really think that Russia is incapable of repeating something that existed back in the seventies?

    It takes a lot of time to develop this kind of technology. Especially automated signaling if you don't get it right you get train accidents. Train derailments and train collisions. This happened in Spain and in China.

    These would be 400 kph trains so like double the speed.
