Aeroexpress will launch two-story trains

Published

on



The company Aeroexpress, engaged in transportation by electric trains from Moscow airports to the city, intends to launch finally two-story trains. The first flight will take place on October 27 approximately at 14.00 and it will be from the Kiev railway station in Moscow to the airport Vnukovo. .

The schedule of work of two-story and their composition in the company to declined, offering to wait for the presentation on October 27. It is expected that on the line in Domodedovo they will be launched tentatively at the end of the year. Send them to Sheremetyevo is not planned – the two-story structure is too ghastly to drive under the bridge at the Belorussky railway station.

The two-story apartment owners, who had forgotten about this feature at Aeroexpress, became a headache for the company instead of a breakthrough. According to unofficial data, because of the non-standard nature of this rolling stock, the carrier now has problems even to send him from time to time in the depot for maintenance – the infrastructure available in Moscow is not ready for skipping two-story buildings.

The very process of ordering trains also turned into a farce, although not through the fault of Aeroexpress.After the collapse of the ruble, due to certain political events, the company could not afford to pay the entire order, and as a result, about half of the trains went to work in Azerbaijan and Georgia. As a result, the company received, as far as we know, 11 trains in 4- and 6-carload versions. In Vnukovo, obviously, there will be a 6-car train, in Domodedovo, in view of the larger passenger traffic, it makes sense to run only dual trains.

Nevertheless, albeit late and problems, the two-tier may become a progress for the company's passengers. It has many places for carrying luggage, electrical outlets, more toilets than operating electric trains, changing tables and the like.

The speed of the novelty is also theoretically much higher – up to 160 kilometers per hour, but there is nowhere to show it in Moscow. Serious changes in the timetable for the motion are not expected. On the line to Vnukovo, part of the trains will go for 34 minutes instead of the previous 35, and one night flight – even for 33.

Aeroflot said its tickets on European routes will be valid for flights on the Moscow-Kaliningrad route. This will allow the company's passengers to quickly reach their destinations in Eastern and Central Europe, using land transport for further travel. At the moment, most of the airports of the neighboring Kaliningrad are closed, and the communication with Germany is also difficult, recalls the correspondent. .

Earlier Aeroflot made a similar decision on its foreign European flights – tickets to one of them operate on any other, if there are available seats. The company also uses a number of airplanes of larger capacity than usual, and on some routes, additional flights are organized. In general, Aeroflot coped with the crisis situation 10 times better than most foreign carriers.

Despite its relatively small size and low standard of living, the Government of Honduras pays great attention to the preservation of the natural environment. Even in the most densely populated areas of the country, it is possible to find nature protection zones, many of which work in very difficult conditions, but support the existence of unique local ecocenoses.

The Selak National Park lies 45 km southeast of the city of Santa Rosa de Copán. This reserve is known for the highest mountain peak in the country, lush forest, here on the slope of the volcanic massif of Montagna de Selac and the mountains of Serra-Las Minas (2849 m), there are the sources of 10 rivers and a majestic waterfall, as well as vertical cliffs accessible only for experienced climbers. The park contains one of The number of foreign tourists in Belarus increased by 34% largest tracts of virgin rainforest in Honduras and hosts about 500 species of living beings.

The oldest forest reserve in the country – the La Tigra National Park (open daily from 8.00 to 15.00, entrance – $ 10), lies 14 km northeast of Tegucigalpa and is one of the most beautiful places in Honduras.The park covers a huge "cloud forest" (area of ​​7482 hectares), located at an altitude of 2,270 m. There are numerous ocelots, pumas, monkeys and about 200 bird species, including the quetzal bird, the national symbol of the country.

El-Kusuko National Park (open daily, from 6.00 to 17.00, entrance – $ 10), is located 20 km west of San Pedro Sula, in the spurs of the Serra del Merendon. It mixes ancient pine forests and thickets of broad-leaved tobacco, wild grapes and dozens of species of orchids, and its famous mountain oaks, reaching a height of 40 meters, have long served as a symbol of this area. Suffice it to say that recent research on the park led to the discovery of seventeen species of plants, still unknown in Honduras. Here there are kusuko (the local name of the armadillus, which gave the name of the park), exotic salamanders, 6 monkeys and even jaguars, although tourists usually see only a huge variety of birds (there are about 100 of them here).

The Marino-Punta Sal National Park is located to the west of the city of Tela, on the coast of the Caribbean Sea. Here mangrove forests, swamps, a small tropical forest and coastal reefs are protected, therefore it will be more correct to consider this picturesque reserve as a marine park.Visiting it is an adventure in itself, because in order to only get to the most interesting places, you will have to use a bus, truck and boat in sequence, but you can only finish the route on foot. But in exchange the tourist will have an opportunity to see one of the most ancient ecosystems of the continent, saturated with all possible forms of life.

The natural reserve of Cuero-i-Salado (www.cueroysalado.org) is located just 33 km from La Ceiba, on the Caribbean coast. The reserve area is formed by the triangle of the Cuero and Salado rivers, as well as the coastline, and covers an area of ​​13,255 hectares. Only here you can see the rarest marine mammal – a harmless manatee, a formidable jaguar, 9 species of monkeys, 198 species of birds (about 28% of the total species diversity of feathered Honduras), 120 species of fish, including freshwater, and visit a separate forest reserve Pico Bonito (500 sq. Km.), Guarding the tropical rain forest of the upper slopes of the Rio Aguana valley and the sources of twenty rivers.

Also widely known is the Biosphere Reserve of Rio Platano – the largest protected area in Honduras, which protects approximately 80% of the animal kingdom of the whole country.In addition to the colossal array of wet forests of La Mosquitia, stretching from the Caribbean Sea in the north to the Punta Piedra mountains in the west and the Rio Patuca valley to the south, the reserve also covers the vast expanses of coastal wetlands and flat savannas of the foothills.
