It is a significant increase of speed from the current trains with a top speed of 250km/hour to trains operating at a top speed of 400km/hour, especially bearing in mind the extremes of temperature and weather conditions including snow and ice, so a lot of testing and simulation will probably be required before train operations can start. Quite a challenge.

Seems to me they’d be better off developing double stack container trains routes like USA rather than highly expensive high speed trains with dubious returns. The TranSib should be double stack.
