In 1914 the company had 42 steamships, none terribly remarkable for their comforts.
The ships sailing between Tver and Ruibinsk were named for composers; between Ruibinsk and Nizhni-Novgorod were named for Russian princes; and those plying the waters down to Astrakhan bore the surnames of writers such as Lermontov and Goncharov.
