The InterCity train

The InterCity trains were introduced at the turn of the 80s and 90s. There are altogether 80 single-floor InterCity cars in operation, of which 12 are restaurant-cars. The double-deckers complement the on-board services with their special services provided for families, allergic passengers, physically impaired travellers. InterCity trains are composed of single and double-deck cars.

InterCity cars have been renovated and during 2006 four cars were modified to be suitable for operations in Russia. The InterCity cars were manufactured by Pasila Workshop and Transtech Ltd. The top speed of InterCity trains is 140-160 km/h.
