Un Icono de los Trenes en Rusia

El primer Flecha Roja a vapor recorrió por primera vez el trayecto entre las dos capitales de Rusia en 1931, y solo interrumpió su viaje diario durante el cerco Nazi de Leningrado del 1941 al 1943. Hay muchos trenes entre Moscú y San Petersburgo, pero el Flecha Roja es el orgullo de RZhD (ferrocarriles rusos) con interiores propios de una película y un exterior rojo brillante, difícil de confundir en las estaciones Moskovskaya de San Petersburgo o en Leningradskaya en Moscú.

La historia que impregna el interior de los coches del Flecha Roja lo hacen muy popular. Incluso los evocadores compases del "Himno a una gran ciudad" que brotan de los altavoces de la estación Moskovskaya en San Petersburgo a la partida del tren (y lo llevan haciendo desde 1965) transmiten una sensación de sobrecogimiento y respeto por los caídos en la defensa de Rusia y el destino del Mundo Libre de la tiranía Nazi e infunden un fuerte orgullo en sus pasajeros rusos. Como resultado de su creciente popularidad dentro de los trenes que cubren el trayecto Moscú-San Petersburgo el Flecha Roja ha dado lugar a la creación de otros trenes nocturnos de lujo, incluyendo el Express (originalmente "Flecha Roja 2") que sale pocos minutos después del original y el Megápolis. Sin duda, ninguno de estos trenes son equivalentes a la experiencia de una noche en el Flecha Roja.

Hoy en día, los trenes de lujo entre San Petersburgo y Moscú satisfacen a los viajeros más exigentes, especialmente aquellos que buscan una experiencia única en todo el mundo. A pesar de su encanto de época, dispone de todas las comodidades de un tren de lujo moderno de cualquier otro país. Los pasajeros del Flecha Roja disfrutan de los servicios y comodidades necesarios para convertir su trayecto en un placentero recorrido entre las dos capitales históricas de Rusia.

Naturalmente, el lujo es una ventaja secundaria del Flecha Roja, ya que hay otros trenes de lujo entre San Petersburgo y Moscú (como el Grand Express). La principal razón por la que los viajeros lo eligen es su historia. Y esto no es una trivialidad. Cuando este tren con recorrido San Petersburgo-Moscú cumplió su 75º aniversario, Moscú creó un tren metropolitano para conmemorar el evento: "Flecha Roja: 75 años". Sus impactantes coches rojo brillante contrastan con el verdor de la campiña rusa y forma parte de la cultura nacional, ¡al igual que el borsch!
