Clearly a drawing. Although a double track tunnel is depicted, it was (and is) single track. See earlier posts.

The 3=6 name came initially as an advertising slogan for the F89 Body cars, but, when the facelift F91 bodies came about, the 3=6 name was to the fore, and the car was advertised as the Large 3=6. The point of the advertising slogan was to highlight an equivalence between the car's two-stroke three-cylinder engine and a four-stroke six-cylinder engine common in many other cars at the time.

Not only the loco, the 'dog box' style passenger cars with each compartment having its own doors are also interesting.

Investigators have released a dramatic video showing the moment a packed Aeroflot Sukhoi Superjet 100 burst into flames, killing 41 people, shortly after being struck by lightning.
Video of the 2019 incident was released on Thursday morning by Russian transport investigation authorities, who have now laid charges against the pilot.
The crash happened at Sheremetyevo Airport in Moscow in May last year.
The aircraft was struck by lightning shortly after departing Moscow for Murmansk, but returned immediately and made a 'jumping' landing at the airport.
The video shows the aircraft sliding sideways shortly after landing, before bursting into flames. The first emergency slide is deployed 17 seconds after the explosion.
