Sm2 "Sami" EMUs

The class Sm2 EMUs soon followed the Sm1 fleet. They were somewhat improved version of the previous, the aluminum body wethering the harsh climate much better than the rusting steel of the Sm1. The Sm2 units are hopelessly underpowered and have a very high floor that all passengers must climb from the platform level. As an obsolete type by todays stnadards these will be the next type to give room to newer trains.
