Russian Bullet Train Takes to the Rails

 

A new high speed train service has been introduced between Moscow and St Petersburg in Russia. The new ER can reach speeds of 200km/h.

The train should cut the journey time in half, to around 4 hours, with another faster train due on the track in 2 years that will possibly halve that again.

With a capacity of 400 people and a fare of around $7, people should need less vodka on the journey.
