52 class locomotives production started in 1942 for military reasons and was going on till 1951 at the factories on the territories of Germany, France, Poland and Check. The first German experimental model of Kriegslokomotive was produced on September 12, 1942. Totally there were built 6719 locomotives. After the Second World War up to 2700 this type locomotives operated on the territory of the USSR. In 1952 it was titled as class ТЭ, but old numeration was saved. The Soviet Union used the locomotives on all the territory, but mainly they were used on the western boundaries: on Baltic, Byelorussian, Ukraine railways. In 1960th its operation on mainline railways ends. Further the locomotives were used in shunting; on industrial railways and as stationary steam boilers. 52 class locomotives were in operation in Latvia from 1943 till 1985.

ТЭП60-1206. The locomotive intended for passengers transportation, has been built in 1984 in Russia at Kolomna machine-building factory.

ТЭ3 (the third type of diesel locomotive with electrical transmission) class locomotives, total number 13 595, produced since year 1953 up to 1973 on three factories of the USSR - in Harkov, Kolomna and Lugansk. Each section is equipped with the 2-stroke, 10-cylinder 2Д100 class diesel engine made at the Harkov factory named by Malishev. It’s main generator supplied by electrical power six traction motors. It is possible to use each locomotive section in an independent mode though in that case it is necessary to turn it around on the end station as the section is equipped with only one driver cab. On the main lines of the Soviet railways locomotives of this class have replaced steam locomotives and became most widely used locomotives for freight service in 1960-ties – 1980-ties. In Latvia locomotives of this class were used from 1967 till 1991 in Daugavpils and Riga locomotive depots.

ВЛ26-005. The overhead/battery-powered locomotive was built in Ukraine in 1967 at Dňepropetrovsk electro locomotive building works. It was used on shunting and for hauling of local freight trains in Riga zone, as well as on electrified and non electrified tracks. ВЛ26-005 was withdrawn from Latvian Railways stock in 1995. It has been refurbished at Zasulauks depot and handed to the museum in 1998.

ВЛ26 – the series named by Vladimir Lenin, the project of 26th type locomotives was held by Public design office of scientifically technical association of the Baltic Railway in Riga. In 1966 – 67th in Dňepropetrovsk were built 10 units of this class locomotives. Six of them operated in Latvia. These locomotives have no analogue in the USSR locomotives building history. Its appearance is the result of large scale experiments in the field of accumulator traction, which were held only on Baltic Railways.

The Shunting Diesel Locomotive ТЭМ2-1000. It was constructed in 1971 in Russia at Bryansk diesel locomotives machine-building factory. It was used for shunting works in Daugavpils locomotive depot, serving railway junctions. It was written off from the Latvian Railway in 1995.

ТЭМ2 (the shunting diesel locomotive of the second type with electric control) the serial locomotive of various updating, total more than 9000 units, have been built from 1960 till 2000. In the process of manufacture the basic model was modernized several times, with giving to the locomotive of corresponding indexes. The locomotive ЭМ2-1000 is equipped with ПД1М four-cycle six cylinder diesel engine with charging turbine set, made on Penza diesel building factory. Its main working generator can supply with the electric power six traction electric motors which with the gear unit help are connected each to its pair wheels.

In Latvia locomotives of ТЭМ2 series were used till 1968. Originally they have replaced steam locomotives in Daugavpils and Rezekne on railway junctions, were used on other junctions and access roads of the enterprises later.

Now some machines of ТЭМ2 series are used for repair of a rail way and for service of repair technical equipment.

ТГМ3Б-2804. The machine was built in 1970 at Ljudinov diesel locomotives building factory. It served on Jelgava, Ventspls and Liepaja depot sites. The locomotive was withdrawn from inventory of Latvian Railway on 1994.

ТГМ3 (the third type of shunting diesel locomotives with hydraulic transmission) is serial locomotive, the total number – 3477, has been built from 1959 till 1977. There were made several modifications during production period, the last modification has index «Б». Leningrad factory “Zvezda” produced 4-stroke V-12 supercharged diesel engines of M753Б class for these ТГМ3Б class machines. The УГП 750/2Т class hydrolic transmission built on Kaluga machine-building factory.

ТГМ3 class locomotives were used in Latvia from year 1967. At first they replaced steam locomotives in Daugavpils and Rezekne railway junctions. Further apart of shunting the locomotives were used for light freight and even passenger trains. This class machines were widely used on different enterprises and in harbors. Also now some of ТГМ3 class machines are used in Latvia.
