This set of rolling stock models can be considered as a luxury first-class train. It would perfectly fit into any landscape or just would be a great item in any collection.
1. CHS2T electric locomotive
CHS2T electric locomotive was built at the factory Škoda in Czechoslovakia in the 70s by the special order of the USSR. Such locomotives were used on the October railway for several decades. Usually passenger and sleeping cars were attached to the CHS2T locomotives that were used to carry wagons with passengers from one destination to another. Over time CHS2T electric locomotives were replaced by locomotives made by engineers of the Soviet Union, but they still remained in history because of its interesting and recognizable design and unique functionality.
The model itself is a very detailed copy of the CHS2T electric locomotive and it looks extremely realistic. The most interesting elements of the construction such as a power section, a wheel base, collector bows and the footplate of locomotive are carefully specified.
2. Sleeping car
This model shows how the first class sleeping car of the Russian Railways looks like. Initially, the predecessor of the first class sleeping car was a well-known luxurious sleeping car (named Pioneer) made by George Pullman. These cars had private room sections with 2 berths and with wonderful interior, and were called "palaces on wheels". Sleeping first class carriage has 9 private rooms and intended for the carriage of 18 passengers. The private rooms are equipped with everything that is necessary starting from soft beds and ending with mirrors and lights for reading.
The model itself is a very detailed copy of the original sleeping car and looks extremely realistic. The most interesting elements of the construction such as an internal interior, a tambour, a toilet, a wheel base are carefully specified. The model even has plastic transparent windows!
The models have HO scale and are compatible with the other UMBUM's rolling stocks and buildings in HO scale. As HO is the most popular scale of model railway in the world, we can say that these models would be compatible with the other wagons and buildings as well.
