Near the Moskovskij railway station (starting point of the Saint-Petersburg - Moscow railroad). (the station is "behind" us, photographer went out of it)
The guys from Moscow started their trip to St.Petersburg here:

Thanks Arseny! The VL8s look REALLY good. If only the designer stayed away from the BTTB style "swinging" pilots attached to the trucks.

Yes, I remember about E / "Russian Decapod", but it may become possible in a very far future...

Ye steamers were less popular than Ae. Since mid-1960s they were moved to the minor local branches or used as switchers, and most of them were retired in 1970s.
Very few of them survived - 4 in Russia + 1 in Ukraine - in working order (+1 in USA :) )
7 in museums in Russia + 1 in Belorussia + 1 in Uzbekistan + 1 in Mongolia, and also 1 in Finland and 4 in USA
and also 13 as memorials in Russia + 1 in Kyrgyzstan

While a lot of Ae survived, and some of them are used for retro-trains today, and also some of them are kept on the "reserve bases".

...But you can develop the Ye steamer by yourself, if you want to get it faster! :wink: For example, in cooperation with Jago, or somebody else...

BTW this locomotive can be interesting not only for Russian and American TTers, but also for Finnish and Chinese too... if you find any... :grin:

Finnish TTers... there aren't many. I visited a Finnish-language model railway forum (joo, puhun vähän suomea), there was a TT thread that had 5 or 6 posters in it... but I think I only saw one or two photos of TT models of Finnish prototypes.

China? I think it's almost exclusively HO, though I have seen a very small amount of N.

But you can develop the Ye steamer by yourself, if you want to get it faster!


In this case I can wait, I have too many things going to try to start something else!
