• How does the new reserved seat Railways
Yesterday, the Russian Railways was a historic event! The new second-class carriage went with passengers from Rostov-on-Don to Moscow, and today - from Moscow to Anapa! And I'll show you the car and tell you what's happening and why.
Before starting a new project Railways is conducting a survey among the passengers that they would like to see in the new car with reserved seats. Let's see what happened.
The interior of second-class carriage wear pretty quickly, so at the first stage it will be put into existing cars at major repairs. And to test the car was taken by the old man, who was operated for about 30 years (the period of service of cars around the world sometimes reaches 40 - 50 years or more, this is normal, as in aviation). The car overhauled and put the new interior.
Now wagon awaits certification and test drives. In addition to traditional fire safety requirements and sanitary standards a lot of attention will be paid to the convenience of the passengers and train crew.
In the car 54 seats. Nine four-seater coupe and nine sections "bokovushek" with two shelves.
Staff only. Small kitchen, car control systems, microwave, refrigerator, sink.
It is already clear that the place of the conductor got narrower. In production cars sink countertop width will be reduced to make the chair larger conductor. Not all can be provided in the design phase, and full-scale mock-up, and then experienced car just designed to hone the project.
Display LAN Railways. You can connect to it by vayfay and access to the media center, news. In general everything is as usual in this class of product. Control train or plane impossible. But then worth cooler. That was the first shock of the foundations - to remove titanium. And this was and remains most of the questions. The fact is that the cooler the water yields a temperature of 90 degrees. Brew tea or "doshirak" enough, but the question of water safety. Still boiling it disinfects. And what kind of water will flood, for example, at "bottom", no one knows. In general, hope built-in filters and ultraviolet disinfection.
The second shock of the foundations - is a modern coupé design and curtain. First, a little raised the upper bunk, and now the first to sit much more comfortably.
In the new table reserved seat Railways became longer, now it is enough for everyone, not just for two people. Opener stayed in place! Let me remind you that drinking alcoholic beverages is prohibited in trains!
Secondly, it is blind. In a survey of the presence of the blind to lead - they were asked by many. Well, it's curtains.
In the third, marginalia transformed completely. Due to recompose space could expand a little shelf (upper side widened by nearly four cm!). I tried to lie down, climb up, use the stairs. All is well, except zalezaniya on the second shelf in the compartment. Again, this is my personal feeling. Designers all comments recorded, said they would think about how to improve. Also removed the metal bracket, which in theory prevents the fall. Instead, it made a permanent studded rim tissue. Now you can lie on your side, and my knees do not rest against the metal tube. Ledge by the window screens in the winter of "drafts".
Of course, it was more comfortable. But how comfortable will have maintenance and reviews of passengers.
Another interesting innovation - made cut on the third shelf. Now, the second one can fully sit!
added a small table to the upper floor. Nearly every seat has a pocket for gadgets where aypad placed.
Completely redesigned zalezaniya system up. Now is such a ladder. As I said, a whole lot better than it was. But I was not very comfortable to climb on the second shelf in the compartment - I rested a knee to the hard edge of the shelf. As I wrote, this moment will finish.
Another strong innovation - no lockers. It is argued that it was originally made for storing the mattress, not luggage. Maybe, but what to do now with the luggage? On the one hand - this is a place. Moreover, the emphasis shifted to the gas side to him fit a large suitcase. But what about theft? Still need a locker. Designers claim that this requirement both carriers and security: first, large suitcases would not fit into a locker and they were left in the aisle, and secondly, the car inspection, for example, when crossing the border, much faster, no need to raise each shelf locker inspection.
Nearly every place has a USB socket. And some even lower shelves and 220. As I said, put the outlet 220 at the top of forbidden fire. This is done to the top did not include a heavy load, for example, a boiler.
Dressing room. Two of them on the wagon.
Changing table. We conducted an experiment. Took massive size of the child (half-empty bottle on 19 liters). Holding it with one hand went to the bathroom, closed the door, opened the table, put the "baby." And in the reverse order.
The third thing that issued the brain - the new mixer combined with a dryer. It turned out that such a thing saves a year a lot of money spent on paper towels (towels also remained, but they will be much less consumption). And instead of liquid soap foam soap dispenser worth - so economical.
The second vestibule - then leave room for vending machines, heat sealing the door, but it is not clear whether to approve fire question is still open.
This is the new reserved seat Railways. So this place looks from the outside.
After the shooting, I looked into the regular reserved seat.
Oh, thank you, but no. Everything is relative, right. I would here like to take just a locker.
