>>7492>How would you call these escort cars? Служебный вагон? И еще один вопрос - камбуз, это вагон ЖД или что-то другой? Дякую з допомога)
"Вагон сопровождения" их обычно называют. Камбуз в русском к вагону не относится, оно обозначает корабельную кухню. А ви шо, з України? Sorry for anyone else for that native language insertion, it was some cheeki-breeki linguistics so no big need in translating it anyway
Anyway, if you've read my posts below the one you replied to, as I said, even much more recent freight cars had this platform for shunting purposes. Since I don't know much about railroading operation in 1800s - early 1900s I can only assume it's the same here.>>7429
Dammit, but why did I stumble across the near PERFECT picture to illustrate local freight service in Russia only short time after I've already posted another pic? Anyway, here it is, better (by quality) illustration of the local freight service in Russia, for convenience often done by shunters (road switchers).
