In connection with the important event, the 15th anniversary of Russian Railways, one should recall the main milestones in the development of the company, which all these years has lived a rich life and is actively developing. For example, back in 2005-2010, Russian Railways launched a program to introduce new high-speed electric trains on Russian railways. The first such long-distance train, Sapsan, connected St. Petersburg, Moscow and Nizhny Novgorod, starting to run between them in 2009-2010. The second, the Allegro electric train, has been operating between St. Petersburg and Helsinki since December 12, 2010. _one_
