Upgraded Estonian Rail Elron to Run in Estonia from 2025
Estonian rail carrier Elron unveiled new passenger trains that will be in service in Estonia from early 2025.
These trains are being manufactured in the Czech Republic and come with various improvements, including more passenger seats, increased space for bicycles, and onboard catering services.
Estonian rail Elron presented the new trains at the Škoda factory in Ostrava, highlighting features like power sockets next to each seat, a separated first-class section, and the option to purchase guaranteed seats in standard class. These new trains can accommodate more passengers compared to the previous ones, with more regular seats and increased wheelchair-accessible spaces.
However, it’s worth noting that the new Skoda trains will come in only two sizes, which might affect their deployment on shorter routes.
