looking at the uniforms and weapons systems in some of the photos, it would seem that either they still use armoured trains, or did until recently ?

The Russian army still fields armoured trains,

They were also used in the recent Balkan wars

It IS, N gauge,but nearer 1/144th I suspect , I had no drawings or dimensions so I made educated guesses.The chassis is a Dapol pannier tank.
