Yesterday visited the dynamic exhibition locomotives dedicated to the 180th anniversary of the Cherepanovs’ steam locomotive (details can be found here: http://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%CF%E0%F0%EE%E2%EE%E7%FB_%D7 % E5% F0% E5% EF% E0% ED% EE% E2% FB% F5).
The exhibition was held at the Experimental railway ring the municipal entity of Scherbinka. Similar ring can be found only in the United States, the rest of the existing test sites (in China, the Czech Republic, France, and other countries) do not allow for the testing of cars, rails, parts in such a rapid time.
That’s actually the very handsome –locomotive by father and son Cherepanov:
Locomotive has not received proper distribution for several reasons: firstly, it has worked with wood, unlike its foreign counterparts, so that over time there was a problem with the constant supply of fuel, and secondly, the spread of locomotives was prevented by horse cabs contractors, who did not want to lose income.
Despite the first bad experience, or as they say, better luck next time, the development of rail transport continued, but more about that in later posts. Meanwhile I would like to heartily congratulate all of the railroad professionals on their holiday *. Wish you good health, happiness and professional success.
* Railroad Day is celebrated annually on the first Sunday of August in the Russian Federation, Belarus, Kyrgyzstan and Bulgaria
