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". The 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.
