Trains and compartments

Trains and compartments

There are the following 4 main classes in the Trans-Siberian Railway trains and in Russia in general:

In all the foregoing classes there are only couchettes.

There are also special business classes on routes between large cities, such as Moscow – St Petersburg. There are usually no compartments in such trains, only seats similar to those in a coach. The seats are often arranged opposite each other with a table in between.

Moreover, the classes differ in quality depending on the type of a train. There are three such classes:

The journey in plackarta class in a passenger train will certainly be less comfortable than in the company one, and the restaurant carriage will serve worse quality food than in a company train.

Plackarta

Number of seats: 54

An open carriage – without locked compartments. The journey in the carriage is the most comfortable on lower places vertical to the direction of the drive. We advise tall persons against side seats. Lower seats are at the same time a cage with enough room for two rucksacks and there it is impossible to reach their inside with the passengers sleeping on them. Air-conditioning is usually provided by company trains but in no other type train. We recommend taking a small lamp for reading, as the light is turned off by the ticket inspector around 8 p.m. A bedlinen set is not included in the price of the ticket.

Kupe

Number of seats: 36

A carriage with locked 4-person compartments. Beds in compartments are longer and wider than in a plackarta carriage, therefore even tall people will have no problems with falling asleep. The compartments in company trains are air-conditioned; however, the carriages in other class trains are not equipped with air-conditioning and each bed has its small lamp. A bedlinen set is included in the price of the ticket. Moreover, in some trains even five meals a day are included in price.
