Today the national rail operator Russian Railways held the ceremony at the Rizhsky train station in Moscow to launch an exhibition-lecture complex – a train to go through Russia from Moscow to the Far East demonstrating innovative products of the leading Russian and foreign companies, news agency RIA Novosti reports.

The machine-building portal i-Mash writes that the complex consists of eight exhibition and three administrative cars built on the base of the new-generation rail cars, produced by the Tver Rail Car Plant.

Under plans, seven out of eleven rail cars are to have mobile exhibition expositions demonstrating high-technology inventions in the most popular sectors of science, technology and industry. The train is also to have a special lecture hall to be used for lectures, master-classes, seminars and meetings.

The Russian Railways has presented models of modern train vehicles at the exhibition, including cargo turbine locomotives, cargo car for transporting coal, passenger electrical locomotives, two-storey passenger rail car. The train visitors can learn more about the history of the national rail transport development, as well as modern rail network infrastructure of the country. Specifically, the guests will see a mini-copy of the terminal of the airport in the city of Adler, Krasnodar region, and the complex at the Baikonur Cosmodrome.

One of the rail cars of the train is devoted solely to nanotechnologies. Rusnano’s interactive exhibition presents innovative products of its 13 project companies, such as energy-efficient thin-film solar modules with lithium-ion accumulator batteries; RFID-tags; light diodes; composition materials. Also, the company Microbor Nanotech has presented its thermal-resistant micro-endurance cutter blade at the mobile exhibition in the “nano-car”.

Among others, the Russian state corporation Rosatom and international engineering company PHILIPS have also taken part in presenting their products at the exhibition.
