Alexander Kulikov, RM Rail Sales Director:

- This rail car is not a mass-produced model, but, due to depreciation of obsolete special-purpose rolling stock, it is in stable demand. The hydrochloric acid tank car is well proven in service, the company has obtained contracts for delivery in 2016 and 2017. Current order volume is about 200 units. Extension of the list of transported cargoes and a new certificate will provide higher running efficiency of such cars for the carriers. Our production is adapted for production of rail cars in small lots, and we are receptive to change in demand.
