RIGA'S 200 KM/H EMU READY FOR MOSCOW-LENINGRAD LINE

The first six cars of the ER200, Russia's first 200 km/h train, have already achieved 206 km/h on the Sherbinka test track near Moscow. Higher speeds will be attained on a fast section of SZD track before the full 14-car train begins pre-service trials on the Moscow-Leningrad line, and after an 18-month test program is completed, the train will enter passenger service. The cars have aluminum alloy bodies. Trucks have welded box-section frames with pneumatic secondary suspension. The unmotored cab cars at each end of the train contain buffets; all the intermediate cars are fully motored and have two-and-two reclining seats throughout.
