02.11.2017 // HEROS sells two classic restaurant cars to Continental Classic Express
HEROS Helvetic Rolling Stock has sold two WRmh 132.1 type restaurant cars to the Hungarian railway company Continental Railway Solution Kft. (CRS). The classic restaurant cars had been leased to CRS by HEROS Rail Rent GmbH since 2014 within the framework of a leasing contract, and the customer has now taken advantage of its purchase option after three years.
The coaches, with a maximum operating speed of 160 km/h, were painstakingly refurbished in Hungary in 2014 and have been offering the luxurious dining services of a classic restaurant car in the Continental Classic Express ever since.
The RIC restaurant cars – with multi-voltage capacity and air conditioning – are run with other renovated CRS passenger coaches in charter transport, or they can also be rented for other trains along with the service personnel that have been trained on them.
