The realization of startup of new production of the Roslavl railway-car repair plant became possible thanks to the appeal of the Governor of Smolensk region Alexey Ostrovskiy to the Ministry of transport of the Russian Federation.

But at the implementation of the project there were difficulties endangering further work of the plant. The enterprise has faced a problem of obtaining permission by the Commission of carriage economy of Council for railway transport of the State Parties of the Commonwealth of Independent States to entering of the flat car into the reference book of data processing center of railway administrations without which its operation is impossible on the public ways of JSC «Russian Railways». The arisen situation threatened with failure of orders that would cause a full stop of the enterprise.

By results of the address the innovative flat car has been included into the reference book of data processing center of railway administrations that gives the chance of its operation on Russian Railways.
Thus, the enterprise which is town-forming for Roslavl, and important for all Smolensk region will continue the stable work. Thanks to the assistance of the head of the region, the plant has a confirmed order for production of flat cars in 2016 providing full employment of personnel – more than one thousand people.
