Ukrzaliznytsia has decided to write off the world’s only rail limousine ZIM

Gayvoronsky narrow gauge railroad – one of the few existing in Ukraine, and it was built in 1897. The main thing that there is a narrow gauge railway Museum with unique exhibits, including unique WINTERS on the rails.

Moreover, it is one of the 3 released of these cars, so he is the only one running instance! In fact, he is the last surviving of its kind. Since the middle of last century, the GAZ-M-12? (“ZIM”) was used for detours Gaivoronsky narrow gauge railway and was one of the tourist attractions of the city. However, soon the rarest car I want simply to “write off”. This was written in Facebook, the representative of the Association of preserving the history of the Railways of Ukraine Dmytro Babaryka.

If not to penetrate into details, “Ukrzaliznytsya” intends to take ZIM from Sochi, where he still rides (!), and to transport him to Kiev.

On the one hand, what’s wrong? But first, in this case, it will transform from a running instance in a Museum exhibit. In fact, it means it “write-off”. But secondly, geographically and historically, ZIM has always been in Sochi…
