    Road switcher TEM1M with tankers during shunting operations in Newton Oil. TEM1M is rebuilt version of TEM1 ("descendant" of ALCO RSD-1) with Chezhoslovakian engine from diesel loco CHME3:




    I used several attempts for screenshots capturing, during first attempt I was meet with TEM1M after long westbound freight, but during second attempt I slowed down my breakdown train and had seen tanker train a bit early:






    TEM1M engineer: Take a look! It's breakdown train, who rushed to Dunktown! I see in cab the Ivan Ageich and engineer-instructor Nikonov!


    Fireman: If in this train rides Vladimir Anatolyevich Nikinov, they drive very fast!

    Somewhere on the short waves:

    This is Russian-language service of BBC from London. Few hours ago near Duntown in Soviet Middle Asia happens railway disaster with leak of chlorine, at the moment held evacuation from dangerous zone, to place of accident depats detachments of the Soviet Army and civil defence formations of industrial plants. Until we are not received official information about disaster from the Soviet government.


    First secretary of local branch of the Soviet Communist Party: Comrades! Foreign media already knows about disaster, now fatest liquidation of disaster needed not only for cleaning of territory, also reputation of the Soviet Union depends on us. What measures are still taken?


    Chemical officer: we just finished loading of troops in Lake Hurst, train should go now. Also motor-riffle regiment from Fort Fairfax was sent our engineering and NBC detachments to Dunktown by motorway. Headquarters of Middle-Asian military district should send helicopter with chief of district chemical troops and chemical specialists.

    It's a Soviet ICBM train with 3 missiles SS-24 "Scalpel". This is top secret information in 1980s, however many railroaders guess that this is an unusual train.

    Arrival to Yonder, passenger train with diesel loco TEP70 and freight train with 2TE10L and TE3 locos. These trains will stopeed for a long time...

    Sontrack - big mix of 1970-1980s Soviet pop-music. This music may sounds right now from portable tape recorder or radio of anyone worker inside the couchette cars of our train:

    In Yonder planned short stop for embarkation of medics to our breakdown train.











    Here on the some screenshots you can see wrecked ALCO PA - I imagine this loco as Baldwin 0-6-6-0 1000 (Soviet name Дб) - 30 these locos were delivered to Soviet Union by land-lease during WWII, it was an unreliable locomotive, many locos were withdrawn in 1960s, last locos in 1980s.
