FMs in Russia - YouTube

Postby BR&P » Tue Jun 23, 2009 10:48 am

A link to a Youtube of what I am told is 6 Russian FMs, 3 ahead and 3 pushing. The smoke from the tunnel would suggest steam, not diesel! :-)

Not only youtube, trainsim.ru is presenting here

http://www.trainsim.ru/download/113/

many diesel locomotive videos in much better quality for free download; the video where the train leaves the tunnel can be also find here.
The FM - types are called in Russia TE10 ( M or U for example) the M62 has a 2 stroke V - engine that could be partially been copied from GM - types but had the much more better sound. Single M62´s had been used in former eastern Germany too and it had been reported that they were able to destroy window glasses based on the deep frequency engine noise when used without a muffler in the early years.... :wink: :-D

Some interesting downloads for the MS - trainsimulator are also available there so you could get the engineer´s feeling driving a TE10 or M62 too.

Awesome videos. What kind of internals do those locomotives have? The same as a trainmaster? I love the smoke pouring out of them. Also, one of those videos has a trio of those locos pulling a train made almost entirely of 8 axle tank cars!
