Rail transport modelling with Soviet-built diesel locomotive for heavy freight trains

Walking along the large model railway exhibit in Cologne, Germany, Pilentum found this little model railway layout that was made by the German company NOCH, a manufacturer of model landscaping. Apart from this, on the railway display there was running the famous M62 locomotive. This is a Soviet-built diesel locomotive for heavy freight trains, exported to many Eastern Bloc countries. This type of locomotive was sent to East Germany between 1966 and 1978, too.

This locomotive has a certain cult following among railfans, and is has got many nicknames, for example Gagarin in Poland, Iwan or Ivan and Siergiej or Sergej in Czechoslovakia, Szergej in Hungary, Taigatrommel (Taiga Drum) in Germany, Mukha in Belarus, and Sinsŏng in North Korea. In the Soviet Union the locomotive is called Mashka or Машка in the Russian language. Why this diesel loco is so famous? Because from the powerful noises and vibrations, when the locomotive runs.
