The interior of second-class carriage wear pretty quickly, so at the first stage it will be put into existing cars at major repairs. And to test the car was taken by the old man, who was operated for about 30 years (the period of service of cars around the world sometimes reaches 40 - 50 years or more, this is normal, as in aviation).

Display LAN Railways. You can connect to it by vayfay and access to the media center, news. In general everything is as usual in this class of product. Control train or plane impossible. But then worth cooler. That was the first shock of the foundations - to remove titanium. And this was and remains most of the questions. The fact is that the cooler the water yields a temperature of 90 degrees. Brew tea or "doshirak" enough, but the question of water safety. Still boiling it disinfects.

In the third, marginalia transformed completely. Due to recompose space could expand a little shelf (upper side widened by nearly four cm!). I tried to lie down, climb up, use the stairs. All is well, except zalezaniya on the second shelf in the compartment. Again, this is my personal feeling. Designers all comments recorded, said they would think about how to improve.
