Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Luxtorpeda was a common name of a famous Polish train, which ran on some of the most important rail routes of Poland in the 1930s. A Luxtorpeda consisted of a single, first-class only railcar, with its own internal combustion engine. Luxtorpeda (roughly translated as English: luxury torpedo) was not the official name of these trains - in the timetable they were called "Poci g Motorowo-Ekspresowy MtE" ("Motor-Express Train," Motor then meaning an internal combustion engine). The common name was inspired by the unusual look of the railcar (streamlined and some 1.5 m lower than the standard rail carriage) and its high operational speed. Luxtorpedas looked like a hybrid between a limousine and a bus.show more
