The premier high speed train of the Russian Railways fleet is the «Сапсан» (Sapsan). Linking Moscow to Saint Petersburg, the Sapsan has a top service speed of 250 km/h, and a level of onboard service more like an aircraft than than train.

In every seat pocket is a copy of ‘Sapsan’ magazine – “The official journal of the Sapsan high speed train”.
The back of every seat also contains an emergency instruction card.
With directions from each carriage to the nearest exit.
Railway staff are there to deliver drinks to your seat.
Their trolleys identical to those used onboard aircraft.
Right down to the “stow and latch trolley in galley during taxi, take-off, turbulence and landing” warning!
I also spotted a few odd sights onboard the Sapsan – read about them here.
