MOSCOW, September 22 (Itar-Tass) – As of December 10, 2011, the Russian railways national operator, the RZD launches a through train between Moscow and Paris via Berlin.
The route will start at Moscow’s Belorussky station.
Andrei Kaliberdin, a deputy director general of the Federal Passenger Company, an RZD affiliation, told reporters Thursday the train will include the European-standard Ritz coaches. The RZD uses their analogues on many of its international routes.
The schedule of the Moscow-Berlin-Paris train has not been fixed firmly yet but it is known as a minimum that the train will cruise several days a week.
“The main goal now is to reduce the number of nights aboard en route from Moscow to Paris to one,” an RZD spokesman said.
At present, the RZD has a through train cruising between Moscow and Berlin three days a week. It includes a through coach to Paris.
As the new train is brought into full-scale operation, the time en route will reduce considerably and the number of passenger berths will increase considerably.
