TMH Received Certificate of Conformity for its 3-Car RA-3 DMU


The three-car version of TMH’s RA-3 diesel train received the Certificate of Conformity to Technical Regulations of the Customs Union.

The Model 753.10/753.20/753.11 rail bus cars successfully passed all tests confirming full compliance with safety requirements for rail vehicles and passenger transportation.

The certificate permits batch production of RA-3 trains, planned in the contract with Central Exurban Passenger Company, signed in December 2018. According to it, TMH will ship six three-car RA-3 to the customer within the first half of 2020.

RA-3 passenger diesel train for non-electrified track is one of TMH’s new products. These DMUs represent a solution for urban, suburban, and regional passenger transportation needs. They service both high and low platforms, and their flexible composition helps adjusting for passenger traffic variations.

Compared to the previous generation, RA-3 have a redesigned passenger interior with better ergonomics, hygiene, safety, and passenger capacity – 133 seats for the two-car setup, 229 seats for the 3-car setup. The trains are fully air-conditioned with separate zones for passenger compartment and the driver. Their tested speed is 120 km\h and their lifecycle is 40 years. They can be operated as a multiple with up to six cars per train. The tail cars carry accessibility zones, wheelchair boarding lifts, and accessible bathrooms.

The trains feature travel information display boards, video surveillance systems, fire and security alarms, energy-efficient LED lighting, sealed gangways, tight couplers, ergonomic driver control boards, and crash zones for added safety. 

Today, RA-3 service Moskovskaya, Severo-Kavkazskaya, Gorkovskaya, and Dalnevostochnaya Railways in Russia.
