Aside from the wrong buffer, this loco is awesome!

I guess that both buffers are wrong.
Russian railways do not use buffers. They use automatic couplers instead. See the real thing: Image

You are right, Russian railways use automatic couplers (since 1957; there was a transition period in 1932-1957), but some M62 locomotives use buffers, especially locomotives used in passenger service

I am sure that in usual, day-to-day life the buffers are black and dirty without any ring.
But maybe for some solemn occasion they can paint a white ring.

P.S. BTW, in Russian slang "buffers" means women's breast, bosom, bust.
And M62 has a nickname "Mashka", "Masha" (women's name)... :smile:

Since the loco has only one buffer with white ring, I suppose this is the wrong one.

P.S. BTW, in Russian slang "buffers" means women's breast, bosom, bust.
And M62 has a nickname "Mashka", "Masha" (women's name)...


And in East Germany, the nickname for the M62 was "Serghei"...?

As I know - yes, it is/was.

But Segheis usually do not have breasts, while Mashas usually do. :lol:

As I understood it, in East Germany the M62 was called "Taigatrommel" (Taiga drum), in Poland it was "Gagarin" and in Hungary (and Czechoslovakia?) it was "Sergei". Never heard of it being called Sergei in Germany?

...don't forget the Rock Island's 'Christine', an Alco passenger loco re-engined with an EMD engine and thereafter known as 'Christine', commemorating the name of the first widely known recipient of a sex change operation!

That's correct. The reason for this name was, that the first 177 locos were delivered without exhaust gas silencer and because of this VERY noisy (95-105 decibel). :twisted:
