Remarks & Notes 

A Soviet Classic

In December 2020 Russian Railways began service of a new type of tourist train - the classic Soviet 'elektrichka' (EMU) restored to operation as a ski train.

This design dates to the 1950's (with this particular set being built in 1972) and was in regular service in Saint Petersburg until late 2020 (although in the modern Russian Railways scheme). Being the last of its kind in operation, RZD decided to give it a second life by repainting it into its classic Soviet green paint, restoring the original wooden seating, and running it as a 'retro ski train' to Yakhroma, a small ski resort town an hour outside of Moscow.
