• The new double-decker train Aeroexpress
In Moscow, there was a presentation of a new train of the Swiss company Stadler, purchased by Aeroexpress to upgrade rolling stock. "Eurasia" The train is a two-story train with all the amenities needed for a way to the airport and back. Train will arrive in the 4- and 6-wagon version and engage in different combinations depending on the passenger.
Welcome to the new train!
The presentation took place at the depot in Moscow Ilyich used by Aeroexpress. Along the way the train caught today ED4MKM-0001. The first generation ago.
And here is the brand new ESH2-001. Electric Fans can see him earlier in the photo galleries, striped red. For the final design added to the gray bar along the entire train and orange stripes to attract attention.
The first 4 train made in Switzerland in the factory town of Altenrhein. The remaining 21 will be produced (or already made) under Minsk.
The parallel red, black and gray stripes for "flying" design. The movement should look nice.
All securities executed in branded company colors. Unfortunately, it is impossible to take a picture of the train was a full-length. I hope everything is still ahead.
Stadler trains are operated, among other countries, Finland and Norway. The climate of these countries has become a test for the trains. Russian winter should not create them problems.
Depot Ilyich. Inside is clean, beautiful. Close to Stadler stands on a normal car repair ED4MKM.

Go to an internal inspection. Introduced six-car structure. Two heads: standard and with all the facilities for the disabled. Two sizes of motor car a little smaller and a little more than the usual two. First, the lower floor.

Let us sit down to business. Immediately catch the eye sockets on every seat.
Head up - lighting.
Labels, once they were in the frame.
to create a socket for each seat is impossible in normal carriage. Electrical train would not be able to sustain the inclusion of all devices in the network of all the passengers.

A small coat hook.
Bright design does not cause sensation of a closed space, which I expected to feel.
You may want to lower the shutter.
In one of the front carriages there is room for the disabled. In addition to reclining seats there is a lift that can be used independently disabled. It may be necessary only in the event of movement in the toilet. So habitual for the wheelchair at the door. double-decker train design does not allow to make the descent down the toilet without taking into account all the dimensions of the stroller, the car dimensions and the passage.
Toilet spacious. The remaining smaller.
The lift was working! Everything has been demonstrated and tested.
