MAY 1: 5-CAR REGIONAL BUSINESS CLASS EMUS TO RUN ON MINSK – BARANAVIČY, BARANAVIČY – BREST AND MINSK – ORŠA ROUTES
28 Apr 2014
New 5-car Stadler EMUs will replace 4-car regional business class trains on Minsk – Baranavičy, Baranavičy – Brest and Minsk – Orša routes.
The timetable and prices will not be changes.
The replaced 4-car EMUs will serve other routes, including Minsk–Babrujsk one.
In 2013-2014, six 5-car EMUs have been delivered to the Belarusian Railway under the contract with Stadler Bussnang AG.
5-car regional business class EMUs have a number of advantages in comparison with the previous 4-car modification. They are more spacious and provide seating accommodation for 302 passengers (compared to 216 in 4-car EMUs). 5-car EMUs have 3 comfortable toilets, including one for the disabled and a more convenient seating arrangement (one by one from the end to the middle of a car). Each car has a large-size luggage zone (racks). Among other advantages are LED displays showing car numbers (on the side of each car) and front-facing surveillance cameras (on the front of a control cabin).
