YEREVAN

The Russian-run South Caucasus Railways that operates Armenia's
railroads, said today it has stopped running an electrical train
that traveled from Yerevan to Hrazdan and further to Shorzha on Lake
Sevan and will replace it by another train that will travel from
Yerevan to the town of Sevan. The company explained this by the end
of vacation seasons.

The South Caucasus Railways said the new train will operate daily,
except Wednesdays.

According to a press release, trains will depart from Sevan at 6:25 and
17:00 local time and arrive at Almast station in a northern Yerevan
neighborhood at 8:30 and 19:05. They will depart from Almast
at 9:00 and 19:35 and arrive at Sevan at 10:48 and 21:23.

The South Caucasus Railways is run by Russian Railways. The
concessional agreement was concluded in 2008 for 30 years, with a
right of extension for another 20 years after the first 20 years of
operation.
