Being an “anachronism” third class carriages are to be replaced
The President of Russian Railways Vladimir Yakunin shared the plan to replace third-class sleepers with more modern and comfortable carriages. Being an “anachronism” they are out-of-date and do not meet with clients’ expectations.
The replacement process will take several years and it depends on the cost reduction and the procurement of new comfortable carriages. They have not been presented yet as well as the start date of the project.
