Trains to ply between Russia's Kazan, Uzbekistan's Tashkent soon
Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct. 5
Trains will start to ply weekly between Russia's Kazan and Uzbekistan's Tashkent from December 9, Podrobno.uz reported citing the website of Russian Railways JSC.
This opens up the possibility of getting non-stop to more Russian regions, Russian Railways JSC said in a statement.
Russian Railways JSC also plans to replace the economy-class berths with sleep-boxes in railway cars. The railway workers finally decided to reconsider the arrangement of common and economy-class carriages, having created the “personal comfort zones” in the carriages.
CEO and Chairman of the Executive Board of Russian Railways JSC Oleg Belozerov told Rossiyskaya Gazeta that they are developing new concepts for passenger cars for increased comfort. He noted that the cars will have sockets and Wi-Fi.
