Equipped with all what was necessary for the luxurious and comfortable traveling, the train was labeled with the good reason as a train saloon. The interior of the train was mostly made of wood. The builders used mahogany, pear and walnut, and saloons and hallways were decorated with marquetry.
The main part of the blue train consists of: apartment saloon of the president, ceremonial conference saloon, dining car, central kitchen, apartment saloon for guests, sleeping car and energy-distribution wagon. The interior in Art Deco style was completed with quality materials (wool carpets, velvet and silk) and preserved in its authentic form.
