Russia-based Transmashholding’s Tver Carriage plant (JSC TVZ) has started the dynamic test run of a pilot double-deck coach with seats at Belorechensk field of North-Caucasus Railway.

The new 61-4492 model train has been developed based on the unit built in 2013 at Tver Carriage plant, but provides slight changes in appearance and interior design.

As part of the domestic, double-deck rolling stock, the new vehicle offers coaches with sleeping berths.

After completion of the test runs and the receipt of compliance certificate, TVZ will supply 15 double-deck coaches with seats to the Federal Passenger Company. The delivery is expected to be in the second quarter of 2015.

"TVZ will supply 15 double-deck coaches with seats to the Federal Passenger Company."

Features of the new car include an air-conditioning system, eco-friendly toilets, Wi-Fi access, display boards and energy-saving lamps along with a changed shape of side wall and radial windows.

The train’s interior part has been designed in collaboration with Italian industrial and transport design company, ItalDesign-Giugiaro.

Equipped with air-tight gangways and slack-free couplers, the train is said to reduce noise and vibration, and the entrance sliding-plug doors with automatic steps offer a smooth flow of passengers.

The business-class coach of the train, which has a 2+1 arrangement and a VIP-compartment with a convenient two-seater sofa, will have 58 seats and the economic class will provide seats 102 passengers.
