CJSC Roslokomotiv, a member of JSC Transmashholding group, entered into a trilateral agreement with JSC Sberbank-Leasing and Central PPK JSC (CPPK) for the supply of RA-3 rail buses.
23 new comfortable trains manufactured by JSC Metrowagonmash will be built and transferred to CPPK in 2019-2020: 17 two-car rail buses RA-3 - in August-November 2019, and 6 more in three-car performance - until the end of May 2020.
Rail bus RA-3 is a new development of the designers of LLC TMH Engineering. The exterior and interior equipment of the compartments correspond to the latest achievements in the field of transport design. The main set of the RA-3 is three cars: two head engine and one non-motor trailed. The bus may also consist of two head cars. Two rail buses can be operated on the system of many units, forming a set that includes up to 6 cars. The new rail bus can be effectively used for commuter passenger transport on non-electrified sections of railways equipped with both low and high platforms. Compared with previous models, the maximum structural speed of a rail bus has been increased from 100 to 120 km / h. The quantity of seats is increased by 15%.
Especially for the RA-3, a new passenger compartment interior has been created, which meets the modern requirements of aesthetics, fire and sanitary and hygienic safety. Compartments are equipped with information boards, which display information about the route; video surveillance systems, microclimate and air disinfection. Energy-saving LED lighting is applied.
In head cars there are places for passengers with disabilities, lifts for wheelchairs, universal environmentally friendly sanitary facilities.
Rail buses are equipped with an emergency crash system.
Since 1997, Metrowagonmash has been developing and producing rail buses and diesel trains. The rolling stock of this class, created at different times in the enterprise, is operated in Russia, Serbia, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Mongolia, Lithuania and Ukraine
