These do look interesting and hopefully there is a locomotive in the future. But they will work with any of the 1/35 locos already out there (although there isn't a need for an "ash cat" shoveling coal on the WR360 C12). With as high as the man with the oil can is holding it, I suspect he is intended for a large steam loco.

These look good.

Miniart has a variety of rolling stock but it doesn't all go together I don't think. There is Imperial Russian stuff and then stock from the WW2 era. I think it would be great if they did some locomotives.

It all goes together. The standard covered van ('Normainiy tovarnly vagon' or 'NTV'), was introduced in 1892 for all private and governmental railways with a gauge of 1524mm, and manufactured until 1931; then frequently updated. I am willing to be their "Railway Non-Brake Flatbed 16.5 – 18 Ton" has a similar history.
