Soviet sleeping car model

The prototypes were in operation from 1980 to 1994 between Copenhagen and Moscow (København-Moskva) but the route itself dated from 1964, when older stock was used.

The models are typical of the Eastern bloc cars with contoured sides and partial Cyrillic script. They are the right length (about 28 cm), have the typical curtains on the windows and are equipped with beds in the compartments.

This pic on the site shows such a car behind the Swedish D class loco - perhaps going to or from Stockholm?
