Diesel locomotive - the record holder was built in 1989 to transport passenger trains. At that time, it was the best locomotive of the Kolomna diesel locomotive plant, which had a powerful diesel engine of 6000 horsepower. In 1993, this locomotive passed high-speed tests on the October Railway between Moscow and St. Petersburg. As a result of tests on this locomotive, a speed of 271 km / h was reached, which became a world record for passenger locomotives. However, this series of diesel locomotives awaited a sad fate. The end of the 80 was not the best time for the Soviet economy, and in 1991 the collapse of the Soviet Union. As a result, all progressive locomotives of that time, including TEP80, were not needed. The locomotive did not go to the series, and later it was completely abandoned. In 2008, the locomotive was transferred to the museum in St. Petersburg

What further destiny of this car? In the photo ER12?
I also did not understand what happened to ER2-1027. It seems to be wanted to keep it.

For the railways of the USSR in the course of the need for high-speed traffic, it was decided to create high-speed electric locomotives for these purposes. The USSR ordered passenger electric locomotives with a capacity of 8x1050 kW in Czechoslovakia at Skoda factory with the designation ChS200 (66E0). In 1974, the ChS200 was built with the numbers 001 and 002. The prototype of the cab form was the ES499.0 electric locomotive. Due to the high power of the traction motors, 4 pantographs were installed to avoid overheating of the contact network. The test reached a speed of 210 km / h. These electric locomotives helped to gain experience in creating high-speed electric locomotives and in 1979 to 1980 from 003 to 012, serial electric locomotives ChS200 (66E1) were produced. They acquired a more aerodynamic form of the cabin, another body, and other pantographs. Serial electric locomotives are still operating on the October Railway. Recently, these locomotives carried the fastest passenger train in Russia - the Nevsky Express. At the moment, the ChS200 is less and less noticeable with the Nevsky Express, basically the new model of the EP20 is doing it. Some of the locomotives are kept in reserve. ChS200 is one of the symbols of high-speed traffic in Russia.

Yes, before it was dark blue when standing in the old museum. Afterwards, he was restored to the depot in St. Petersburg before the opening of the new museum and he got a blue colors. This is the only saved electric locomotive this series (built in 1959). Its prototypes are also in France. Here are the old variants of colors of the locomotive
