Double-decker train No. 46/45 Moscow - Voronezh in Russian Book of Records


On 14 August 2015, double-decker train No. 46/45 Moscow - Voronezh with seating accommodation and operated by the Federal Passenger Company set a Russian record for a "regular long-distance train with the largest number of seats travelling all the year round."

The new record was registered by Alexei Svistunov, the chief editor of the Russian Book of Records, at Kazan railway station in Moscow. A certificate confirming the record was awarded to Vladimir Kalyapin, Deputy Managing Director of the Federal Passenger Company, which is a subsidiary of Russian Railways.

"Today, Russia's railways do not have another train which can handle 1,320 passengers," said Vladimir Kalyapin. "The Federal Passenger Company will make every effort to increase the number of such trains as much as possible."

All the tickets for the double-decker train No. 46/45 with seating accommodation which departed on 14 August 2015 were sold.


The launch of the double-decker Moscow–Voronezh train became a new stage in the implementation of the Daily Express program on July 31, 2015.

The train is made up of wagons with 1st- and 2nd-class seats; compartments in 1st-class wagons are equipped with double occupancy.

The route includes stops at Ryazan, and Michurinsk, and Gryazi Voronezhsky stations. The two-story Moscow–Voronezh train is the fastest train on this route: travel time is 6 hours 35 minutes. It is planned to further reduce time in transit.

Federal Passenger Company had previously launched a double-decker train made up of compartments and sleeper cars for the routes Moscow–Adler, Moscow–St. Petersburg, and Moscow–Kazan.
