Each type of the trains will have their own symbol and typical decoration, reads the report.
Those cars that will be included in the train will have icons in certain spots to indentify the type of the train, category of the cars and services provided by passengers.
Icons will define seats and classes of the cars; sleeping seats and category of the car; seats for passengers with children; no smoking; restaurant car; bar car' air conditioning; a car with space for bicycles; a car with a compartment for disabled people and a car with WiFi services.
