There are more double-decker cars on the railways that are unloved by tourists

Tourists were given a hint why the number of trains to the south is not enough for everyone – the fleet of cars of the Federal Passenger Company increased by only 258 units over the year. This conclusion can be drawn from report carrier for 2023. Now it has 16,349 units at its disposal. At the same time, the company bought 531 units during this period, but half of them went on line to replace the old ones.

The majority are compartment cars – there are 7.4 thousand of them. There are slightly fewer second-class cars – 6.8 thousand. At the same time, the average age of the cars is 17.4 years. Those with sides are on average a little younger.

The fleet of double-decker cars is growing the fastest. The carrier currently owns 902 units. Over the course of a year, there were a hundred more of them. At the same time, FPK transports 12% of passengers on them. They operate on 22 routes.

Interestingly, last year the carrier did not buy two-story buildings of the newest “2020” model with a shower, wireless charging and an increased size of the second floor – its roof profile is made a little differently, which gives the passenger more space. These models appear in brochures and exhibitions. But the new hundred that joined the fleet belongs to the previous generation of rolling stock.

The company noted that 90.7% of the car fleet is currently equipped with air conditioning, and about 83.8% of the fleet is equipped with environmentally friendly toilets.

Earlier, TourDom.ru wrote that Russian Railways was removing double-decker cars from the Moscow-St. Petersburg route in order to send them to the south.
