Expo 1520

Experimental Ring of JSC Russian Railway Research Institute (VNIIZhT), Moscow, Russia

Event description

The first-ever and only railway fair in the wide-gauge area, EXPO 1520 is a biennial show held on the Railway Testing Loop (JSC "VNIIZhT") in Sherbinka, Moscow. It features an exhibition and a bespoke conference which explores all major aspects of rolling stock manufacturing and exploitation.

The exhibition showcases the all-new rolling stock and railway equipment produced in Russia, CIS and EU. The outstanding number of full-size rolling stock ever demonstrated in Eastern Europe has registered EXPO 1520 in the Guinness World Records.
