There are also expresses to Ryazan stopping in Kolomna that are slightly faster and take a little less than two hours.
The main train station, Golutvin, is not located in the center of the city, it takes around 45-50 minutes on foot to get there. The station called Kolomna is closer to the city center, it's the penultimate stop on Moscow-Golutvin route.
