Railway Equipment Magazine

Published by IPEM with the support of the Union of Industries of Railway Equipment (UIRE) the Railway Equipment magazine is the leading issue of Russian railway industry. Established in 2008, today the magazine is published 4 times a year only in Russian so far. By 2010 the magazine obtained the scientific status and, as a result, became the general publishing venue for materials dedicated to Russian railway industry scientific and technological breakthroughs.

Besides materials about technical, economic and legal aspects of industry development, the magazine includes unique statistics covering the recent industry state. Based on official data of Russian federal executive authorities, RZD JSC and rolling stock producers, actual statistical figures are published on quarter basis and will be interesting to all industry enterprises. Published data includes macroeconomic figures, rolling stock production levels divided by the producers, quarter financial results of industry activities.

Traditionally, once in 2 years before InnoTrans International Fair the special English-language version of the magazine is issued. It includes information about the latest activities in Russian railway industry, industry figures and the most interesting materials from Russian version, which were published in last 2 years.

You can find the full PDF versions of English-language Railway Equipment issues below.
