The 230 class (formerly BR 130) incorporates a Russian original on German tracks. It was bought from 1970 onwards by the East German State Railways. From then on these Soviet diesel locomotives (over 1000 examples) formed the back bone of diesel traction. With an engine output of 3000 and even 4000 hp these are among the most powerful diesel locos in the world. Lok 230 077 was totally modernized. It is now in service with the RTS (Rail Transport Service GmbH). Even today it is impossible to manage without the robust engineering of this former star export from the Soviet locomotive industry. The 231 class (formerly BR 131) of goods locomotives known as the Russian "Ludmillas", incorporated the concept of a robust and powerful goods diesel locomotive. Based on the BR 130 locomotives previously purchased by the East German State Railways, this sub-class was now specially designed to haul heavy goods trains. Rock solid, simple and ordinary, some examples of this old faithful Soviet export product are still in service on German railway tracks. There is a worthy representative of this BR 131/231 class in the possession of the Railway Museum of Saxony (SEM) at Chemnitz.
