The line was opened on 21 November 2019, at the same day as D1. It uses the tracks and the stations of the Rizhsky and the Kursky suburban railway line. The length of the line is 80 kilometres (50 mi), and the travel time between the termini is 116 minutes.[1] These suburban railway lines have been connected earlier, and through suburban trains were running between them, therefore the initial investment to open the line was minimum.[2]

Modified Ivolga trains have been serving the line since its opening.[2]

StationsEdit

The stations between Volokolamskaya and Ostafyevo are in Moscow, others are in Moscow Oblast.

Pokrovskoye-Streshnevo and Moskva Tovarnaya stations are set to close.

Pechatniki and Shchukinskaya will open in 2021.
