From 7 to 10 September 2011 the VNIIZhT’s experimental test circuit at Scherbinka, near Moskva, hosted the Third International Railway Salon - EXPO 1520, the only specialised exhibition event dedicated to the railway industry in the former Soviet Union and ex-Soviet countries, which have 1,520 mm rail networks. On the following pages we take a look at the most outstanding exhibits.
The photo was taken on 7 September 2011 and shows part of the motive power waiting for start of this magnificent and elaborate cavalcade. The first locomotive is TEP70BS-151, which is produced by TMH’s Kolomensky zavod of Kolomna. The second locomotive visible is the 3 kV DC Sinara 2ES6-126, produced by Uralskie lokomotivy.
