The train of the future will take from Moscow to Vladivostok for 20 hours

The agreement on scientific and technical cooperation was signed at SPIEF 2014 by Vladimir Yakunin, President of Russian Railways (RZD), and Sergei Kirienko, General Director of Rosatom State Corporation. The main area of ​​cooperation will be the development of a maglev transport system on a magnetic suspension, which will allow speeds up to 500 km / h. According to the publication "Gudok", if the maglev is built from Moscow to Vladivostok (9300 km), then this distance can be covered in 20 hours.

According to the President of the Russian Railways, the technology of movement using magnetic levitation can later be used not only for containers, but also for other types of rolling stock. “From the point of view of implementation, when technologies mature, when scientific ideas and their economic implementation become compatible, then it will be on the road,” said V. Yakunin.

As S. Kiriyenko said, research in this area is carried out in St. Petersburg research institutes. In one of them, an 250-meter experimental site on superconducting magnets has already been created.

When the high-speed trains of the future will ply throughout the country, it is not specified.
