High comfort sleeper coaches for long-distance journeys within Iran
Rail Pardaz Systems (Tehran) is retrofitting former German coaches to high comfort sleeper coaches for long-distance journeys within Iran. The trains - marketed under the Brand "Fadak" - enable comfortable journeys with catering in each compartment, appealing interior, spacious configuration (only 4 persons per compartment) and an airplane like passenger entertainment systems.
PROSE is supporting Rail Pardaz Systems during the retrofit activities from engineering over manufacturing supervision to validation.
During February, PROSE's experts witnessed running dynamics tests of the first batch of eight coaches. The photograph shows the train during this runs on the line between Tehran and Qom.
During the retrofit, car body and bogies undergo a reconditioning. Everything else like the whole interior, the closed toilet systems, the air conditioning system as well as the complete electrical system is new.
This combination leads to a very comfortable vehicle for an extremely attractive price!
