«Transmashholding» designed a third-class sleeper of capsule type. Kirill Lipa, the head of Transmashholding informed journalists about it.
Oleg Belozerov, Russian Railways GM informed earlier about designing of such a rolling stock. In case of placing an order train carriages will be produced by the Tver Carriage Works (Transmashholding’s asset).
Belozerov announced earlier that next two years Russian Railways would change third-class sleepers for more comfortable train carriages. It’s planned to use train carriages with common space with no compartment. Places of capsule type as well as “space-transformer” train carriages are in consideration in which it’s possible to form a place for a trip.
