It completely imitates the cabin of the EG2Tv (Ivolga) electric train, recreating the situation on the road, with a dynamic platform that allows you to solve emergency situations, for example, emergency braking. We also have simulators for Lastochka electric trains for MCD and Moskva, which train future workers of the Moscow metro.
