Military Review

Our memory. The power and greatness of the locomotive

79



Indeed, few museums have such exhibits. Tanks, guns, howitzers, trucks, self-propelled guns are somehow more familiar. Plus, the sizes are also suitable. Meanwhile, not only they won the war. Steam engines were, perhaps, not so noticeable, but, nevertheless, a very significant component of any army.

Moreover, losing the battle due to lack of tanks or guns is likely. But to lose the battle without starting it because of the lack of locomotives is no less logical. For it was with their help that tanks and guns could get from the factory to the front. In some countries the size of a handkerchief, maybe it would be otherwise. But not in ours.

In Brest, opposite the main entrance to the Brest Fortress, there is a small museum. And there ... I would say there is the maximum concentration of horsepower per square meter of museum area. However, judge for yourself.


Entrance to the museum. Neatly so. And immediately after the entrance begins the exhibition.

To begin, we will show all small things, and leave the most delicious for dessert.




Motodrezina TD-5. The tiniest exhibit in the museum's collection.




Motor vehicle AC1A. Self-propelled car for official use.




Narrow-gauge diesel locomotive TU-2. Such diesel locomotives were used on children's railways. This specifically worked in Minsk, and I watched his brother in Baku. Maximum speed - 50 km / h, the power of the diesel 300 l. with.




Snow plow SDPM. 1965 gv, power about 2000 hp






Shunting diesel locomotive TGK-603. 1962 GV Power 240 hp, speed up to 60 km / h. Weight 28 t.


Locomotive M62, 1970 GV, power 2000 hp, speed up to 100 km / h. Weight 116,5 t.


Locomotive 2TE109. Power 3000 hp, speed up to 140 km / h, weight 120 t.


Diesel train DR1. 1969 onwards, speed up to 120 km / h.


Locomotive TEM15. Power 1200 hp, speed up to 100 km / h, weight 120 t.


Actually, not a museum piece, his brothers still plow. And this one is chilling ...


Locomotive TEC. 1968 GV, cargo, two-section. Power 4000 hp, speed up to 100 km / h, weight 252 t.

Now go to the main part.






Locomotive series LV. One of the last Soviet locomotives. Power 1660 hp, speed up to 85 km / h, weight 190 t.






FD20 series locomotive ("Felix Dzerzhinsky"). 1936 gv, power 3100 hp, speed up to 85 km / h, weight 135 t. Produced from 1931 to 1941 years. Honored front-line soldier.








Locomotive TE series. German, which can be seen on a narrow rail track. TE - "Trophy, identical to the series E". Released in 1943 g, power 1400 hp, speed up to 80 km / h, weight 135 t.

The 52 type steam locomotive, or BR 52, was developed in the first half of 1942 as a “military” locomotive. The main task of the designers was to create the cheapest and most technologically advanced and at the same time reliable and easy to maintain locomotive. In this case, the possible duration of operation was allowed to be neglected: the estimated lifetime of the locomotive should have been about 5 years.









In total, during the war, about 2200 of such locomotives, which were operated on the railways in 1940-70, were received by the USSR as trophies and reparations.


Another German, but already converted to our track. Russified.


Steam locomotive PNNUMX. 36 GV The last Soviet main steam locomotive. Power 1956 hp, speed up to 3000 km / h, empty weight 125 t.








Hulk. Wheel diameter 185 cm.






Locomotive series KC-4. "Skoda", 1947 g. Power 200 hp, speed up to 50 km / h, weight 106 t.






Tank locomotive of the 9P series. 1953 onwards, power 320 hp, speed up to 35 km / h, weight 53 t.

Tank - this does not mean that there is a gun. This means no tender with coal. It is replaced by a relatively small box. Shunting engine.








Steam engine PNNUMX "Victory". 32 onwards, power 1946 hp, speed up to 2200 km / h, weight 80 t.








The steam locomotive of the CO series ("Sergo Ordzhonikidze"). 1948 onwards, power 2100 hp, speed up to 70 km / h, weight 130 t.




Locomotive Series Su. 1948 GV Power 1560 hp, speed up to 115 km / h, weight 120 t. Produced from 1924 to 1951. Our "workhorse" of the war years.




Service (headquarters) car with a study.


Covered two-axle freight car 1915 (!). "Teplushka". Also honored member of the front road.


Even with the stove inside.


This incomprehensible structure is a pneumatic coal loader.


Coach.


Steam cock PK6. Miracle of technology!


Year of release - 1956, but this was released before the war. Load capacity 6 tons, boom range from 5 to 10 m.








Here, apparently, missed the word "hands".





I went inside one of the exhibits, after the tour. Everything is complicated and incomprehensible there.





[Center]


[/ Center]

Here is a museum ...







Separately listed all the heroes of war and labor.

In general, there are a lot of impressions from 1500 meters of canvas with exhibits. Power and beauty.

      Yes Olya! Workers. And at the Blagoveshchensk station there is an LV steam locomotive, and at the Skovorodino and Belogorsk stations P-36 steam locomotives. Starting from January 32, 14, P-1947 series locomotives began to be produced under the name "L" in honor of the chief designer of the Kolomensky plant Lebedyansky. .S. Thank you. One hundred Belarusians have preserved such a large number of railway equipment and a wonderful museum. And thanks to the author for such a detailed excursion.

      Great review!
      A small yellow self-propelled cart with a motor from the Dnieper or Urals and a headlight in front of the article always delighted me with its mobility and speed.
      Railway workers wound on it along the highway without any schedule to monitor the condition and, if a train appeared on the way, they stopped quickly, removed it from the rails on their hands, and after passing the train they also quickly put on the track and continued moving

        Great stuff. Belarusians on the railway, I speak of the post-war period, there was order. They always had full states both on the way, and on draft. They even took the initiative to downsize. As the railway workers of the RSFSR later complained, they introduced the experience, but did not think that the states in Russia were already cut back. They still had to be cut. A period of decline began on the road. And then perestroika came and everything mixed up.
        For some reason, of the presented locomotives, I did not see the main worker of recent years for a couple - L-50. And called the diesel locomotive "TEM-15" - a diesel locomotive with power transmission, it pulls electric motors powered by a diesel generator. Hence the smooth starting. Such even on suburban lines were put on draft

          They put it. Rarely, really. The machine for the highway is not sharpened. In the booth, it’s not that there is not even a toilet — there is no washbasin, the diesel operating mode is also shunting. But on small stretches and on non-staff highways, it is quite acceptable.

          -----------------
          We also have a steam locomotive in the depot, I don’t remember which one. Kanash (Chuvashia) in general, the city of railway workers. One of the key nodes of the Gorky railway. He studied at the depot as a child when the Code of Criminal Procedure was in the 9th grade, the basics of the “assistant to the driver” were explained — semaphore traffic control, arrangement of the railway track, the main components of the locomotive and wagons. In general, a steam locomotive in Russian is a symbol of power and beauty, like a bear. "Buzzing like a steam locomotive", "puffing like a steam locomotive", "it will not pull, not a steam locomotive." That is, the engine is perceived as a symbol of strength.

Without rail transport in the Great War there would be nothing, and most importantly, Victory! After all, only the railway workers managed to accomplish the impossible — to evacuate industrial enterprises to the east and transfer fresh formations for a radical change.

        Boilers from steam locomotives in many boiler houses stood and stand, but already as hot water tanks, not steam ones. At least when I was still working, the rejected steam engines tried to be disposed of to the maximum benefit. What could be used was used up to the point that large autogenous parts were cut into blanks for the forge. And there was always a queue behind the boilers.

    It was a very interesting report and a good museum. In my childhood I had seen enough of steam locomotives, and I traveled by train with a steam locomotive. It was especially interesting to travel through the tunnels in the Caucasus and not close the window.
    But FD has never been a passenger locomotive, but only the most powerful freight locomotive.

    Why it didn’t remain. Until the mid-1970s, steam locomotives of the Ea and Em series were used in the Far East, on the side branches and suburban traffic. Actually, I would not consider them purely Lend-Lease. The E-series locomotives were developed in Russia, but in the USA. At the reserve bases, these steam locomotives were until the 2000s, now I don’t know. Here is a link to these steam locomotives. American-built Russian steam locomotives bore the E-Series both during World War I and in subsequent years. In the United States, it was called the Russian Decapod. This link not only about LAND-LIZ steam locomotives, but also lists the places where they are installed as monuments.

      The builders of armored trains were very fond of this series. I read so much about armored trains, mainly Ov and Aude, although other locomotives of these series were mentioned.

    It would seem that, well, a steam locomotive was erected on a pedestal, like a monument ...
    And when you are traveling on the road to Moscow or vice versa, you pass the famous Orsha, where the P36th, nicknamed the General, rests on a pedestal. A little to the side you can see the reserve base, where there is a huge number of steam locomotives. And such a base in Belarus is not the only one. Here is a report on the stock base in Krichev - http://www.sb.by/ng/obshchestvo-6/article/na-zapasnom-puti.html.
    We, as they say, are peaceful people, but our train is on the emergency path. And it’s not in the form of a pile of scrap metal, but in full “combat” readiness. Life taught ...

      Great exhibit. ТМ-3-12 conveyor. In Vladivostok there were ТМ-2-12 and ТМ-1-14. It’s a pity that we cut it, and how much information I got, back in the early 50s of the last century.

    Is SDPM self-propelled? What’s the power of 2000 hp? About the prohibition of the work "in curves" - this is not about hands. This is about the turns of paths, arches, for example. In curves, the outer rail is slightly higher than the inner one, and the crane apparently does not have outriggers. Therefore, when working in a curve, it will be slightly tilted and may roll.

      The cranes of the PK-6 series were already somersaulting well. We didn’t consider it in our depot or emergency if the PK-6 went off the rails. The TsUMZ-15 crane was more stable. Maybe a little off topic but this is also a steam technique.

      The power unit of the engine is a boiler. The stove, that is. Grate, water pipe and damper. Because the old people are standing in stock in warehouses, because there is nothing to break into them. Everything is being repaired in the simplest workshops.

    A beautiful museum, was there a few years ago. But in Moscow, at the Kazan station, more recently, on the 16 track, there was the last steam locomotive that worked until the 60's on the Kurovskaya branch. However, when the bosses changed, he was removed.

    From the Kazan station there is a retro excursion on a steam train to Kolomna, there an excursion to the local Kremlin and in the evening on a steam train back. There is a ring where the engine can turn around, well, and refuel with water. Two modern Aeroexpress carriages cling to it, but it sometimes smacks of smoke. The guide tells a lot of interesting things along the way. It was unexpected for me that the engine during the acceleration significantly jerks the wagons. Engineers with "crusts" on the engine will pay extra. Even in the event of a nuclear conflict, the engine is practically indestructible, there is no electronics in it, it can work on almost any organics (it is clear that it is worse) and water.

    In fairness, it is necessary to mention one more machine - a steam locomotive of the Ea (American) series. Such locomotives were delivered from the United States via Lend-Lease in 1944-47. More than 2000 steam locomotives were delivered. Power - 2080 hp, speed - 70 km / h.

    There is also a children's railway in Rostov-on-Don. The idea of ​​building a children's railway in Rostov-on-Don, the Komsomol members of the city expressed in 1936. In May 1936, a group of Rostov schoolchildren took part in a meeting of young builders of children’s railroads, which was chaired by Academician Obraztsov. The decision of Rostovites was approved by the Council, and already in 1937, circles of young railway workers began to work in Rostov. But the preparation of the DZhD project and the settlement of all kinds of formalities took several years. Only on August 4, 1940, on the Day of the Railway Worker, at a gala rally, the construction of the Rostov Railway was announced. The horn of the YuP-305 steam locomotive, by then already delivered to the place of the future road, announced the event.

    - A wonderful car - a steam locomotive! And transport, and boiler room, and drive for power plants ...
    - The big museum of steam locomotives was in Tashkent, at the North Station ..., next to the Nikolaev workshops — in Soviet times, we repaired 26 of the M locomotives there — about a month we repaired ...
    - But the head saloon car in the Kaliningrad Museum will be abruptly - with a glass roof!

    Novel! Thank you for the photo story. You look at such exhibits of bygone times and sometimes it becomes insulting that we often act on the principle of "What we have - we don’t store, lost - we cry."

    From half a century ago, my father served in the Poltava region. Grandma and grandfather in the south (Stavropol) .We traveled almost always by rail. The Stavropol-Caucasian branch (Kropotkin city) is still not electrified. And then, in the early 60s, only the main lines were EMNIP on electricity. And on such "dead-end" branches there were locomotives. Only closer to the mid-60s we replaced them with TE3. And at the entrance to the Caucasus from the side of Stavropol was, as I now understand, a storage base. How many hundreds of locomotives and what brands were there - HZ. Now you have to travel mainly by road, in the area of ​​this base there have been no HZ for decades. Hardly anything left. And what is difficult to make such a museum?

    Alas, this applies not only to steam locomotives. On the territory of the flight school, we had the YAK-28 and TU-128. Unique exhibits, but alas - disposed of. In our city at one time there lived a guy who published the Lokotrans magazine. Even to me, far from the "road" it was interesting to read it. And when, in agreement with the leadership of the road, a retro train from a steam locomotive and 2-3 wagons arrived in the city, it was impossible to get into it. After 15 kilometers on it traveled with her daughter, her impressions were enough for several weeks. I told everyone how I went to "REAL STEAM"
    And in general, I don’t know how others do, but I have always associated these machines with POWER. Diesel locomotives and electric locomotives in their background looked pale, although with your mind you understand that they are ahead in terms of characteristics.

    Dear lovers of railway equipment!
    I invite you all after our Victory to come to Donetsk and see our museum and our steam locomotives (unfortunately only those that can be saved at that time). I do not understand much about this type of transport, but we had a steam locomotive, I could not reach the top cut of the wheel with my raised hand, with normal adult growth. We had cars of release before World War II. We had exhibits amazing and rare, for example, a wooden desk dispatch clock with 24 (from 00 to 24 hours) dial divisions. And one locomotive of the LV series was distilled from Sverdlovsk to us. Oh, how many things we had ... God grant, that would have survived after this war.
    Therefore, after the Victory, I invite you to Donetsk. I clarify: Donetsk is not the one in the Russian Federation, but in our Donetsk, in the Donetsk People’s Republic.
