Eurasia (Russian: ЭШ2 «Евразия», also Evrazia) is the name of the "Stadler KISS" double-deck high speed electric express trains used by the Russian railway operators Russian Railways and Aeroexpress.
In 2014, due to the growth of passenger traffic on the routes connecting urban stations to airports, Aeroexpress has signed a contract with Stadler AG: a contract for production of 25 double-deck TGV-based Stadler KISS family — 16 4-car set 6 and 9-car version. The cost of all 118 cars is 385,31 million euros. According to the production plan, the first three trains will be fully assembled in Altenrhein where there is scientific and practical center Stadler. Assembly of the remaining 22 trains will be implemented in the new plant of the company in Minsk.
For the first time, in early February 2014, the body of the motor car trains for the future was presented at the plant in Altenrhein . In August 2014, the plant produced the first six-car train AS-001, which was soon sent on the ferry to Klaipeda. In October 2014, the train arrived in Minsk for acceptance, commissioning tests. In November, its presentation took place in Moscow's Ilyich Train Depot; soon the second train arrived. Both trains were painted red with black bands at the level of the Windows.
Later, due to lack of funds caused by the decline of the ruble against the Euro, Aeroexpress has further delayed the purchase of new electric trains. As a result of this funding crisis, the delivery of the first two trains manufactured in Belarus has never been carried out, and the third train was taken on the ferry to Lithuania and finally sent to Fanipol in April 2015.
