TU8P (ТУ8П) is a Soviet, later Russian diesel locomotive, railcar or draisine for gauge 750 mm (2 ft 5 12 in).

History[edit]

The TU8P (ТУ8П) is used for passenger transport on narrow gauge railways. The TU8P was developed in 1987 - 1988 at the Kambarka Engineering Works to replace the ageing locomotive class TU6P (ТУ6П). The TU8P was designed to be used on any gauge from 750 mm (2 ft 5 12 in) to 1,520 mm (4 ft 11 2732 in). The cab is equipped with a heat-system, refrigerator, radio-set and air conditioning.[1] The first diesel locomotive TU8P - № 0001 was delivered to the narrow gauge railway KSM-№2 with track gauge 750 mm (2 ft 5 12 in), TU8P diesel locomotive № 0007, 0008, 0056, 0057 were built with track 1,067 mm (3 ft 6 in) for the Sakhalin Railway.[2] The TU8P (TY6P) motor railcar currently used on the Vietnamese railway network.[3] The diesel locomotive TU8P & series AMD-1 (АМД-1) are for railway track monitoring and inspection for the Russian railways with the track 1,520 mm (4 ft 11 2732 in).[4] The TU8P diesel locomotive № 0003 - 0004 were built for the Uzbekistan with the track gauge 750 mm (2 ft 5 12 in).[5]

Additional specifications[edit]

  • Number of seats in the cabin - 14
  • Distance between bogies - 4,000 mm (157.48 in)
  • Base of bogies - 1,400 mm (55.12 in)
