Retro Train with the Interior of the

A retro train with the interior of the Nikolaev Express will transport  tourists since June 1 from the Sortavala station to the Ruskeala mountain park in Karelia.  The interior of the train will be designed in the style of the Nikolayev express. It will include compartment cars and a dining car.

      The old factory railway line was restored and a wooden platform was created. The retro train schedule is designed for convenient docking with the Lastochka train at Sortavala station, as well as with the Meteor watercraft cruising to Balaam. This is a joint experimental project of the Ruskeala mountain park with the Direction of Russian Railways speed train.

      As noted on the website of the October Railway, the launch of the electric train "Lastochka" on the route St. Petersburg - Sortavala - Matkaselkya using the TEP70BS diesel locomotive took place in December 2018. This route connected St. Petersburg with the tourist and recreation cluster of Karelia and connected the main tourist centers: St. Petersburg, Vyborg in the Leningrad Region and the Republic of Karelia, where the tourist industry is actively developing.

      To organize the locomotive movement in the Sortavala-Matkaselka section, the railway workers restored almost 2.5 km of the track, repaired the platform of the Sortavala station and the turntable of the former  locomotive depot, reconstructed utilities to supply the locomotive with water and maintain it.
