Ryazansky suburban railway line

The Ryazansky suburban railway line (Russian: Рязанское направление Московской железной дороги) is one of eleven railway lines used for suburban railway connections between Moscow, Russia, and surrounding areas, mostly in Moscow Oblast. The Ryazansky suburban railway line connects Moscow with the stations in the south-east, in particular, with the towns of Lyubertsy, Kurovskoye, and Shatura. The stations the line serves are located in Moscow, in Lyubertsy, Ramenskoye, Voskresensk, Kolomna, and Lukhovitsy in Moscow Oblast, as well as Rybnovsky and Ryazansky Districts and the city of Ryazan in Ryazan Oblast. The suburban trains have their northwestern terminus at Moscow Kazansky railway station in Moscow. In the southeastern direction, the suburban trains terminate at Ippodrom, Faustovo, Vinogradovo, 88km, Shifernaya, Golutvin, Ryazan I, and Ryazan II.[1] The line is operated by Moscow Railway. The tracks between Moscow Kazansky railway station and Lyubertsy I are also used by Kazansky suburban railway line.

The suburban railway line follows the railway which connects Moscow with Ryazan and continues further to Samara and Saratov. It is electrified and has at least two tracks everywhere between Moscow and Ryazan.[2] The distance between Kazansky railway station and Ryazan I is 197 kilometres (122 mi).

HistoryEdit

The railway between Moscow and Kolomna was constructed between 1860 and 1862 and was officially open for passenger and cargo traffic on 20 July 1862.[3]

The section between Moscow and Lyubertsy has been electrified in 1933. In 1934, the electrification was extended to Bykovo, and in 1935 to Ramenskoye.[4] It was extended to Ryazan in 1958.[5]
