The presented virtual overview of the concept train was made by RB Rail AS experts to illustrate the characteristics of a high-speed train, while the train visualization is based on a general train model, allowing everyone to imagine the train of the future.

In 2021, when the European Year of Rail would be announced, during which the rail industry will be in the spotlight for its contribution to the safe, environmentally friendly and comfortable transport of people and goods, RB Rail provided an overview of the design concept and performance of the virtual train.

“According to a survey conducted in the Baltic States at the end of 2020, only 37% of Estonian and Latvian residents and 27% of Lithuanians traveled by high-speed trains,” comments Agnis Driksna, CEO and Chairman of the Board of the Rail Baltica RB Rail AS joint venture. “This requires us to be even more proactive in informing and educating the public about the personal, environmental and economic benefits that high-speed train will bring to the people of our region, including its overall positive impact and experience of traveling on high-speed train.”

The design of the train was inspired by one element that connects all three Baltic states – the Baltic Sea. The sun, sea and sand are reflected in the color scheme of the train model. This virtual model is an imaginary train inspired by the most modern high-speed trains used in Europe and around the world.
