13 The Train Of Emperor Nicholas II

The Train Of Emperor Nicholas II

Posted on December 1, 2011 by

The train was built in 1894 – 1896. It had been reconstructed many times and by 1902 it consisted of 10 cars. Some of them were intended for the Emperor, his family and suite. A kitchen, a luggage compartment and a compartment for servants were located in the other cars. Later, they added one more car to the train and it was used as a church.

The cars were painted in dark blue and decorated with gilding. They used fine and expensive wood, floors were covered with linoleum and carpets. Between the Emperor’s compartment and the compartment of his wife, there was a bathroom. The tub was made of two metals, copper and silver.

    Ah yes, “cousin Nicky”….

    Better than Lenin…. (and the rest)

    If only he would have seen the plight of his people, and not live so high on the hog when they were living so poorly.

    Lenin didn’t make things better, he only brainwashed people into believing they were better (while the people in his party lived the high life, instead of just the one family)

    It’s pretty amazing, how people that have little, will feel better by taking from those that have much, even though it benefits them, almost not at all. It just makes them feel better, knowing the “filthy rich” people now have nothing either.

    (that’s the whole mantra of the occupy wall street idiots. Well, that and lies)

      Lenin gave people hope, thats why Soviet Union set high goals and achived them.

      Occupy wall street protestors arent idiots they are honest hard working people who are tired of being treated like shit by the 1%.

      • Tricky Dick says:

        Achieved them because Wall Street borrowed Lenin and Stalin the money…

      • Mercal says:

        People need to TAKE responsibility for themselves and get an education and/or get a JOB.

        Oboma is part of the 1% and he is not giving away his MILLIONs of dollars and/or helping his Aunt that is living on foodstamps/welfare.

        The people protesting are being paid by people like Soros and Michael Moore.

        How many people did Lenin/Stalin butcher I think it was around 50 million people.

        I guess the Gulag was the middle class living…

      Sometimes it is difficult for people to see the big picture. They get caught up in the moment and lose sight of what the real goal is. That is to strive to live better. Living poorly is the fastest way to lose sight. People also forget that it is up to them to make their own way, not someone else.

      What you say is very true.

    Lenin/Stalin/Mao butchered over 100 MILLION people!

    People were starved to death in the Ukraine 7 MILLION people died.

    The ironic part is Oboma is a MILLIONAIRE and he gave $4000 last year to charity. I guess he needs all of his millions of dollars to live his lifestyle off the backs of the tax payers.

      And yet you find that the tsars are more unpopular than any other Russian rulers. Unpopular with Russians that is. People like you would love them, wouldn’t you, because they kept Russia under their heels.
