Proposals in 1912 led ten years later to projects by Ing. A.N. Shelest embodying gas turbines of which one prototype was built but not until 1935 was a conventional gas turbine locomotive placed in test service. Pioneer work continued elsewhere until 1957-59 when Kolomna Works produced its 3,000 hp prototypes and currently projects of 6,000 hp are under consideration. Meanwhile Lugansk has a 1,150 hp gas turbine under test for locomotive applications.
