The coaches will be used to operate services on Sakhalin island, and offer improvements to accessibility including an exterior lifting device. In addition, the coaches are equipped with toilets, showers and self-service catering facilities.
Unlike previous coaches operated in Sakhalin, the new fleet offer open gangways between vehicles.
The new coaches comprise:
TMH subsidiary Metrovagonmash (MVM) previously delivered three RA-3 Orlan DMUs to Sakhalin on November 5, under a contract signed at the end of September.
New EMUs for Moscow
Demikhovsky Machine Building (DMZ), another TMH subsidiary, also announced that it has delivered a fleet of six 3kV dc 11-car EP2D EMUs to Moscow commuter railway operator Central Suburban Passenger Company (CPPK).
The EMUs were delivered in two batches, with the first three handed over in September, and the second three in October. The new trains will be used to operate services on the Belorussky and Savelovsky commuter lines.
The trains are equipped with folding ramps, braille signage and dedicated wheelchair spaces to improve accessibility, as well as environmentally-friendly toilets, pathogen-sterilising air-conditioning units and USB charging outlets.
Central PPK currently operates a fleet of 108 11-car EP2Ds, which it has ordered in batches since 2016. The existing fleet is used to operate services on the Kiyevsky, Kursky and Rizhsky commuter lines.
