Dining car  Model 61 536.1.002 photo other machines rail transport motorization and transportationDining car is used to serve meals in the manner of a full-service, sit-down restaurant. It is a part of long-distance trains using «Russian Railways» OJSC main lines with rail gauge 1520 mm and maximum design speed up to 160 km/h. The car has proved to be a highly reliable and safe vehicle, provides a high standard comfort and service and contains advanced storage, cooking and dish washing appliances. The car is equipped with audio- and video- systems, communication system, air conditioning system, ecologically friendly toilet and dining room with comfortable chairs and tables, bar counter and galley. Structural materials used to decorate its interior are ecologically clean and fire-resistant.

Special features contributing to enhanced performance

* In 2009, the company modified core model of the dining car. The modification was based on experience gained during continuous operation of «Russian Railways» OJSC premium service trains;
* Furniture in the dining hall is made of modern decoration materials instead of traditional plywood and wood. New decoration is wear-resistant and, therefore, has a longer life;
* Interior is decorated with thermoformed plastic elements. This high quality material is more practical. It belongs to the family of fire resistant materials, has low fire spreading and smoking coefficient, antiseptic and noise absorbing characteristics;
* The car is tinted with panes providing enhanced noise reduction and heat protection. There is a window for emergency escape on each side of the car;
* The interior of the dining car is illuminated with LED and luminescent lamps;
* The galley contains multi-function electric oven with six burners specially designed for railway cooking;
* The car has a special compartment for dish washing with filters for water purification and disinfection;
* Capacity of the battery used in the car (350 A•h) is sufficient to keep kitchen appliances working yet during layovers and low speed travel regardless of the generator operation. Diesel generator is used as a supplementary power supply, as well as for battery recharging;
* High capacity diesel generator has an extended service life, it does not have to be serviced frequently. Diesel generator requires additional vibration absorbers and dumpers, which prevent vibration transfer to the car body;
* Central panel controlling major car systems has a “lateral” layout. This substantially reduces adjustment time during start-up or maintenance;
* The dining car has fire alarm system and water extinguishing system. Heat and smoke detectors are installed in different areas of the car. The water extinguishing system is permanently kept fully operational, as it is connected directly to the battery;
* Unlike similar conditioning system mounted under the car, in this case air conditioning system has a built-in voltage adapter protected from external shocks, dust, stones, snow and water. As air conditioning system consumes 2.5 kW less than the previous model, it becomes possible to switch on more appliances at a time;
* The car is equipped with ecologically friendly toilet; the toilet is intended for maintenance staff, whereas car service personnel can use the shower.Basin mixer tap is combined with an expandable shower hose;
* The car was built with a lateral and frontal manually opened swing doors ideal for temperature range from –50 to + 50 ºС.By customer’s request, our company can install automatic veener-sliding doors with electric drive and swiveling foot boards;
* The exterior of the car was painted with polyurethane enamel; life of the top layer may exceed six years;
* The customer can suggest his own interior design solutions and request additional kitchen appliances.
