Comforts ever improving for passenger rail travel
Five-carriage Swiss Stadler Bussnang AG regional electric train with business class seating arrives at Minsk Department of Belarusian Railways
By Sergey Smirnov
The train is the first of six being supplied to Belarusian Railways by Stadler Bussnang AG, following a contract signed in December 2012. Serving the Minsk-Baranovichi-Brest route, the five-carriage train has a number of advantages over the existing Swiss Stadler Bussnang four-coach electric trains running across Belarus.
With three comfortable washrooms, and one designed for those with less mobility, the new trains also boast a convenient configuration of armed seating, facing in the same direction, from the end of the coach to the middle. Each coach offers luggage racks for larger cases, carriage numbering on side LED displays and front-facing cameras on driving cabs.
