It looks like a wagon for transportation of prisoners
• How does the train for transportation of prisoners
One of the most interesting exhibits of the Novosibirsk Museum of railway equipment to them. NA Akulinina seemed a wagon for transportation of prisoners. In his life escorting of railway I have observed more than once, but that's not ever been in a car. Well, in the capital of Western Siberia at the free person has the opportunity to look with one eye in the prison world.
Outside this car something like a luggage. He also has a little window, and they grids.
One half of the car inside a little different from the conventional compartment.
where the convoy was driving.
Under the table - safe "personal matters" and other documents.
Normal wagon samovar.
The stove on which food is prepared for the convoy. Prisoners were given dry rations and hot water.
The second half of the car is designed for prisoners. Here I decided to quote "Butyrka-blog". The words of a blogger who had been in prison many times and traveled to such carriages I have italicized.
Who convicts transported to Stolypin carriages of the detention regime - in different compartments. Since I was the only one in the car with the regime "colony-settlement", then I went in one compartment. "Stolypin" - this is a normal compartment car, converted under contract of carriage. It 9 compartment separated from the corridor of the metal lattice. The door to the compartment, as lattice, closed on a brand new castle outside. The window opening in the compartment tightly embedded metal panels. So that the light penetrates into the compartment only from the corridor through small frosted window.
Of the nine compartment 6 large - that is, ordinary three-bedroom shelves along each wall, and another shelf, folding between the second level - it forms to sitting on the ground level of the ceiling. And three compartment - tees that is truncated by half the usual coupe with three shelves. There is another compartment, which, unlike ours, is not separated from the corridor grid, and the same metallic panel as the window in the coupe. Thus, in the same compartment is always darkness reigns. This compartment is used exclusively for the carriage of persons sentenced to life imprisonment.
On the walls of the compartment glued two pieces of paper: one called "prohibited", the second - "Obligations under escort." The latter document, in my opinion, need to be called "Rights and Obligations", but the rights of the escorted nobody explained - some responsibilities. In this document, by the way, there is one interesting point: "The conclusion to the toilet convicts and persons in custody, carried out one by one. When driving down the hall to keep his hands behind his back. "
Output to the toilet, of course, is carried out only during the motion of the train and the car is not a luxury, so it sways well. If you follow this rule without question, we can not all escorted to bring to the desired place for them healthy. So, of course, it all depends on the convoy: as a rule, strictly fulfill this provision does not require. Question: why do you need it?
I opened .. gave me a packed lunch. In its contents for over a year there have been significant changes for the better. First, porridge, which were put, you can actually have it. Second, cookies, too, was edible, the previous rations on it could easily break the teeth. Third, putting steel normal tea.
What else there could be put - so it wipes. The fact is that none of the "Stolypin" from those on which I was driving - and I've seen a lot of them - in the bathroom there was no water in the sink. Accordingly, it is impossible to wash your hands. And in the car sometimes you have to spend two or three days. It turns full insanitary conditions.
Then either water should appear in the sink, or wet wipes to dry rations. And the second is preferable as it is with the assurance that everything will get. In the meantime, everyone who travels or is going to go by step, piece of advice: bring your wipes.
