Kazakhstan locomotives on kyrgyz railroad

On March 31 in the building of the central office of JSC "NC "KTZ" the agreement was signed for the supply to the SUE "Kyrgyz temir zholy" the second installment of TE33A locomotives manufactured at the production facilities of JSC "Locomotive kurastyru zauyty".

Formal acceptance of locomotives in Bishkek operational depot is scheduled for early May. 
Two locomotives from the first batch are operated on Kyrgyzstan railways more than six months. During this time the machine completely justified the technical characteristics declared by the manufacturer. According to the company, SUE "Kyrgyz temir zholy" updated its rolling stock over 30 years ago. Kazakh freight locomotives were “a breath of fresh air" for them.

The priority is to increase a local content

Specialists of LLP "Tulpar - Talgo" mastered another process. Now the plant produces a full cycle of coach painting.
This work is carried out in several stages: before putting paint it is necessary to perform priming works as Talgo coaches are made of high strength aluminum. Lifetime is significantly reduced without primer paint work. Next is the application of paint colour. Now this paint is purchased from foreign countries, but specialists plan to use the product of Kazakh producers. The final stage includes nail polish on the painted surface and drying the coach.
The entire process is supervised by Patentes Talgo representatives. In addition, workers involved in painting passed a two-month training course at Talgo factory in Spain. At every step of painting the modern equipment of leading machine builders in the world is used. 

E-ticket project will be launched

Technology of purchasing train tickets via the Internet in Kazakhstan is unified with the world practice: ticket is remote, a paper version is printed out and passenger enters the train by fixed electronic registration.
The project will start at 7.00 pm today. Ticket sales are available at WWW.EPAY.RAILWAYS.KZ.
- At the moment the scheme was introduced as a pilot on the route Almaty -Astana (train 001/ 002) , Oral -Astana (train 057 /058) , Atyrau-Almaty (train 077/ 078) , Aktobe , Astana (087 / 088 ), - announced today at a press conference in the office of the national company " Kazakhstan temir zholy" in Astana manager of KTZ branch -"Directorate of Information Technologies" Sergey Nikitenko . All regions of Kazakhstan will be covered by online sales in 2015.
By purchasing a ticket from a computer connected to the Internet, the passenger does not refer to the cashier as before. He comes directly to the train.
At the moment of landing conductor registers passenger using a mobile terminal.
Traditional sales through railroad station in this case remain. However this time while referring to JSC "Passenger transportation" cashiers passengers will get not usual form of the ticket, but fiscal ticket that looks like a receipt for the transaction through the payment terminal. In this travel document all travel parameters are reflected: the number and direction of the route, train, wagon and seat. The same information at the time of purchase falls into electronic recorders of the conductors. While boarding passenger shows fiscal ticket, which is going to be registered by the conductor, and then takes his place in the coach.
The new technology represents the most advanced form of an e-ticket, eliminates the paper travel documents and chooses convenient methods of payment for travel. It provides automation of the sales process and excludes costs associated with the human factor, creates a significant financial impact for passenger service as well.
