Good news for the Trans-Siberian budget travellers:
RZD (Russian Railway Company) showed the pictures of new 'platzkart' carriages with personal space, modern interrior and vending machines.
The third-class train carriages will have curtains for every passenger and a personal USB socket.
Besides now the carriage attendants don't need to sell food and drinks, there will be special vending machines for that.
The replacement of the old carriages with new ones starts in 2019
