Caption: Prototype Siemens high speed train. This is the Siemens Velaro design, being exhibited in St Petersburg at the Russian Railways (OAO RZD) exhibition in August 2006. Eight Siemens Velaro RUS trains have been ordered by Russian Railways for use on the 650 kilometre track between Moscow and St Petersburg. In 2009 they will replace the older ER200 design (see T650/204). Eventually reaching speeds of 300 kilometres per hour, they will cut the journey time below the 2006 times of 3 hours 55 minutes. The Velaro RUS design has been specially adapted to withstand the cold conditions of Russian winters. Photographed on 3 August 2006.
