Hand luggage are things that you can take with you to the car. In hand luggage, you can take one piece of luggage no heavier than 36 kilograms and no more than 180 cm in the sum of width, length, and height. You need to purchase a travel ticket for each additional hand luggage weighing up to 50 kg.

Baggage are things that are carried in a baggage car. If the luggage is heavier than 36 kilograms and exceeds 180 cm in the sum of width, length, and height, it is necessary to hand it over to the baggage car.

A passenger can carry up to three pieces of luggage with them, each of which must be no heavier than 75 kg and no more than 180 cm in the sum of width, length, and height. You can issue and pay for luggage transportation at the Russian Railways ticket office.
