Russian railroads strongly follow the philosophy of preventive maintenance. The schedule of work is controlled both by mileage and time. In 1961 a program was put in operation by order of the Ministry of Railroad Transport, setting certain norms for the mileage between major overhauls. Tables show actual distance between locomotive overhauls as compared to prescribed norms; distribution of defects by component (of the locomotive); and the cost of major maintenance vs cost of overhaul for various locomotive component parts.
