A second similar train was withdrawn from service in March 2015, it is planning to complete its repair until May 2016. The first of two double-decker electric trains developed by Skoda Vagonka and bought by Pivdenna railways arrived in Kharkiv in May 2012. The train has six wagons, 636 seats, including 46 first class seats on the second deck.
