“We looked at the passenger carriage, at how it is arranged, and thought that there is something to improve. We believe that in compartment cars the access of passengers to second-level shelves is very difficult and dangerous, ”said Igor Telichko, General Director of International Business Cooperation.

Changes are proposed to be made taking into account the current dimensions of the existing wagons. Stairs to the second floor, which is separated from the lower one, lead from the corridor. It is proposed to expand the space for the upper part of the compartment by lowering the floor in the places of the partitions between the compartments.
