I love the Russian attitude. We've got a Darn Big Chassis. And we're going to use it for Every Darn Thing We Can Think Of. For decades......

As for the loco body on the truck chassis, the only appropriate phrase is "WTF?". And there was more than one, apparently.....

Does anyone do Gauge 1 Russian diesel locomotives? That would be about 1/35.
