#52 Train #1/#2 'Red Arrow' Moscow to St Petersburg, directA direct train between Moscow and St Petersburg. An overnight service, departing Moscow at 22:20 arriving at 06:39. The main disadvantage of this service is the very unfriendly arrival hour early in the morning (note it is unlikely you will be able to check into your hotel room straight away). Also, there is no dining car. The cabins are just as comfortable as the 'Red Arrow' below.
#2
'Red Arrow'
We can also book Train #2 'Red Arrow' from St Petersburg to Moscow, daily departures at 23:55, arriving 07:55, but prices are more expensive on this flagship service although there is a dining car
#156
'Sapsan'
A high-speed service now operates between Moscow and St Petersburg cutting the journey time to just over 4 hours. Most convenient day departure is at 13:00, arriving at 17:17. Earlier and later departures are also available. It does mean an extra hotel night is required.
From € 49 per person in second class, from € 75 for Red Arrow or € 101 for the Sapsan.

#55 Train Moscow to St Petersburg, directA direct service between St Petersburg and Moscow. This train does not have a dining car and leaves after midnight at 00:40, arriving 09:53.
