The specifically decorated train will be launched in time to coincide with the 130th anniversary of poet’s birth.

High-speed train named after Samuil Marshak will depart from the Moscow Kazansky railway terminal heading to Voronezh on Wednesday, June 14 – this was reported by the Press Service of the South Eastern Railway. The train was named after the poet due to the fact that Marshak was born in Voronezh but spent most of his life in Moscow. The two-storey train № 738/737 will run under the “Marshak Train” brand during the celebration of the 130th anniversary of poet’s birthday.

The train will depart after “Marshak Readings” in Moscow timed to coincide with author’s birthday anniversary. The event will involve Vice Governor of the Voronezh Region Yelena Fadeeva, Israeli Ambassador Gary Koren and Samuil Marshak’s grandson – poet and translator Alexander Marshak.

“Marshak Readings” have been held since 2015. In 2015, the event helped collect donations to install a monument in honor of Marshak in Voronezh. In 2016, the event was held in Jerusalem.

The context

Two-storey trains № 45/46 and № 69/70 “Moscow – Voronezh” started running in the “high-speed” category on June 1 of 2017. In this connection, they were renamed to № 738/737 and № 740/739. Their travelling time is 6 hours 25 minutes.
