High-speed train Allegro will link St. Petersburg and Helsinki

Russian and Finnish railways have agreed upon the name for a high-speed train, which will first run between St Petersburg and Helsinki in 2010. The train projected to run at top speed of 220 km/h will have the name of Allegro, meaning fast in Italian. The key colours of the train coincide with the ones used in Russian and Finnish national flags white, red, blue and silver.
      
      The new train promises to reduce the travel time between the two cities from 5.5 to 3.5 hours. The passengers will be able to pass customs during the trip with no time lost.
