converted from miner's trollcars,
in which the soft seats were placed and the caged roof were removed.

The rolling-stock consist of 1 motorized, 1 leading and 4 trailered cars. Full capacity of an electrotrain is 90 men.
Motorized car is electric locomotive with single-seated control cabin and stock of batteries. Trailered cars are completely passenger and have soft seats, placed by back to a window. The leading car also has a passenger saloon with windows at the end, that allows to observe a road. The doors consists of shutters and opens manually.
The train leaves the starting station "Entrance gate" forward by the leading car, and the motorized car is last in rolling-stock. Accordingly, on a back way the rolling-stock departs from final station "hall Anakopea" by the motor car forward.
