The train “Plavi voz“ is the museum-tourist train which before the former President of SFRY, Josip Broz Tito, passed away, was used exclusively for his travels and the travels of the highest elected officers and political figures and foreign statesmen in the country and abroad.
The train was manufactured in 1959, at the wagon factories “Goša“ in Smederevska Palanka and “Boris Kidrič“ in Maribor.
The name of the train was given by the factory workers because it was painted in blue to be distinguished of the other trains, the Yugoslav Railways train compositions generally painted in green colour. The train composition was consisted of ten coaches in so called “Main train” and eight coaches in so called “First train”.
“Main train” constituted an unit providing the complete comfort and possibility for activities and protocols during the travel and it was consisted of: President Lounge, dinning room, main kitchen, lounge for guests, dining-car, closed wagon for transport of automobiles, sleeping coach and energy distribution wagon.
