The Russian electrichka (commuter train) has been replaced by a faster and more modern Lastochka train (the name means Swallow and continues a tradition to name Russian high-speed trains after birds). Lastochka connects Moscow and St. Petersburg with many other destinations like Nizhny Novgorod, Velikiy Novgorod, Petrozavodsk etc. High-speed electric train "Lastochka" (Desiro RUS) was developed by Siemens AG. It consists of 5 cars. The electric train can reach speeds of up to 160 km / h. It can be operated in a dual mode (5 + 5 cars).
