6 Locomotives At Rest

Locomotives At Rest

Posted on February 11, 2011 by team


There are many places in Russia where old Soviet locomotoves rest after their long service. Let’s explore one of such spots.

The old cars stand in a neat row.

There are also some new ones.

The railroad gets regularly cleared of the snow. The engineer does not see the road well so you’d better not stand in front of this locomotive.

Here are the old ones.

This is the picture of such locomotive made in 1988.

Workplace of an engineer and a stoker abounds with different levers everywhere.

“Injector steam engine” sounds weird.

Some equipment is dismantled.

Local citizens call the locomotives scrap metal and have no idea why are they still here.

Maybe these are some Russian strategic stocks?

In any case it is, of course, a great open-air museum.

This one was given the grand prize in 1937 in Paris.

Hoarfrost on metal looks very beautiful.

Somewhere there are other cars and locomotives, even the local workers don’t know how many.

    The train in Paris in 1937 is cool. As for the yard . . . how do they keep the kids from playing there? When I was a kid we would have been all over those old trains unless they were in a secure area.
