Lastochka Premium Available for Yekaterinburg-Tyumen Trips

UrBC, Yekaterinburg, November 22, 2016. Siemens and Sinara Group’s joint venture Ural Locomotives’ Lastochka Premium ES2GP Train went on a demonstration trip from Yekaterinburg to Tyumen and back on November 17-18, 2016, Sinara Group’s press service reports.

It takes the train 3 hours and fifteen minutes to get from Yekaterinburg to Tyumen (or back), which is one hour faster than the shortest connection currently on the train schedule, with average speed at 150 km per hour.

‘The new electric train was displayed to Tyumen Region Duma deputies on Sverdlovsk Railways Day. Deputy Chair of Tyumen Region Duma Alexei Mironov, Deputy Governor of Tyumen Region Evgeny Zabolotny, Tyumen Region Government representatives, city and town council officials, and Tyumen Region Duma deputes could all take this demonstration trip from Tyumen to Yekaterinburg through Voinovka and Lake Andreyevskoye,’ the press service says.

The idea is to use these high-speed, Comfort Plus electric trains for Yekaterinburg-Tyumen and Tyumen-Yekaterinburg routes on a regular basis.

Now Lastochka Premium is Russia’s first Comfort Plus electric train suitable for intercity travel.
