The rolling stock, manufactured by Torzhok Carriage Works, was purchased last year. Each train has two leading cars, a motor car, a trailer coach and a seating capacity of 528 passengers. The railcars are fitted for both high and low platforms.
“The new diesel-electric trains will replace old rolling stock operated on the Sverdlovsk Railway,” said Evgeniy Savostin.
Until the year 2017, JSC SCRC is planning to buy 12 ED4M type electric trains, 12 rail buses and 3 more DT1-type diesel-electric trains.
