TMH Certified New Double-Deck Passenger Cars
TMH received a Certificate of Conformity to Passenger Transportation Safety Requirements for its new double-deck passenger cars.
The Model 61-4523 (sleeper compartment car) and Model 61-4524 (staff car) are among the latest products developed by TMH. Similar to “2019” lineup, they are designed to be operated in pairs.
The new car models received pneumatic suspension to ensure an even smoother ride and a new body frame gauge to allow for higher ceilings and more space above upper berths on the second floor.
Each car has 16 4-berth compartments. Together they form a 2-car unit with a sealed gangway, where one of the cars features a staff room with a control board for both cars and the other car features a service area for placing vending machines, coffee makers, luggage shelves or bike and ski racks.
nstead of cushioned wall panels the compartments now have couches, air conditioning can now be controlled for each individual compartment, each passenger now has a personal safe. Each of the cars contains three lavatories, one of which is equipped with a shower. One of the lavatories in the staff car is designed as accessibility lavatory.
The staff car additionally contains a compartment for a person with disabilities and a caretaker. A wheelchair lift for low platforms can be activated at the entrance to the car. In case of an emergency, a special device will help a person with disabilities quickly escape the car.
The interior trim is mostly in grey and light brown colors.
The new rolling stock complies with all requirements to passenger transportation. The “2020” line of passenger cars will be produced as part of the long-term contract with Federal Passenger Company, signed in February 2019 and active until 2025.
