Nice idea a plausible draw.

When I proposed a superfast diesel express for a 1-meter gauge I had something like the Burlington Zephyr in mind. My honored friend came with totally different idea, very practical and flexible: the trainset is not articulated, you can play with capacity using a single motor unit with a motorless car, or add an extra car making the whole thing a four-unit. Needless to say, vasillich's train is unlike any other diesel express. Love it.
