  1. I’m surprised that the control stands of the Russian locomotives were never standardised like they are American Units.

  2. I understand how the Russian government over the years has been careful about what is seen in the west about their rail networks, but As a model railroader, its like you missed out on half the planets railways! Keep it up. I live in Australia, and we have a mixture of engines here, a lot of American types, rebuilt, then rebuilt again, modified for this country. I have thought for years we should go electric for most of our countries rail (most of its diesel electric).
