Electric train series ЭПГ
Developing infrastructure, increasing the population of Minsk and satellite towns, the increase of business activity of the population, and as a result, the
accelerating pace of life require a qualitatively new approach to speed.
To expand the capabilities of the transport service and create a comfortable enviroment passenger travel, the Belarusian Railway is implementing an investment project, which aims to create a new format of passenger traffic within the city of Minsk and its suburbs, which allows to organize a movement with small intervals, while ensuring maximum comfort for passengers accordance with modern international standards.
The role of intra-urban rail transportation in the new format — to perform the function "Skytrain", providing an opportunity for passengers with a minimum of time to carry out the movement with the ability to transplant to other types of public transport.
As part of this project, the Belarusian Railway selected modern trains of the Swiss company Stadler, which has experience in the production of rolling stock for railway track width of 1520 mm.
The main characteristics of electric trains to operate on city routes
|Train length, m||75,2|
|Number of cars||4|
|Number of seats||260|
|Total number of passenger seats||624|

|Design speed, km/h||160|
Electric has lowered floor for easy entry and exit of passengers, bright and spacious lounges, creating favorable conditions for the movement of passengers inside the cars and between providing visibility across the length of the composition.
doors have an opening width of 1300 mm, which in
combination with single-level landing platform height 550 mm
(European standard) allows you to quickly implement the embarkation and disembarkation of
passengers and to reduce the duration of parking at stopping
To facilitate the embarkation and disembarkation of passengers from the platform height of 200 mm, which is equipped with an overwhelming amount of the Belarusian railway stations, there are special retractable steps.
Near the front door of each train has a floor heating zone, which prevents the accumulation of snow and ice and prevent cases of injury of passengers in the winter.
All doors are equipped with air curtains, which prevent the loss of warm air when getting on and off, thus saving energy for heating the stock.
In one of the cars allocated to each
of a large multi-purpose area for passengers in
wheelchairs, with prams, bicycles and bulky luggage.
In this zone there is a toilet vacuum type, equipped with heated water, liquid soap dispenser and electric hand dryer, which is also adapted for use by passengers with disabilities.
Electric is equipped with air-conditioning and heating systems, adapted to the climatic conditions of Belarus, which allow to
maintain a comfortable temperature inside the cabin and in the cab. Capacity of the heating system in the winter can provide the interior temperature
up to + 20 ° C at ambient temperatures up to - 30 ° C.
The cars have triple-glazed windows with tinted, heat and sun protection coating that provides high thermal insulation while maintaining high light transmission.
In the passenger compartment mounted several displays, which displays information about the route of the train, the outside temperature, current time. With the help of these same screens can be made of various broadcast videos.
On the walls of all the input fields and
buttons are mounted microphones for emergency contact passengers to the
As cars have multiple cameras with the transfer of images to display in the cab.
The recorded information is maintained for 72 hours.
