Well, the thousand or so Russian locomotives I had data for are in the database and accessible on the site. Data cleanup for these is ongoing as some have been scrapped, others moved, and many others have had their status changed. Several site visitors have contributed photos of Russian locomotives to being our collection efforts for these.
Rumor has it that there are actually as many as 2100 locomotives remaining in Russia. Research is ongoing in this area, and if they’re found, they’ll be added to our database.
During the efforts to get the Russian information in place, several small, but annoying bugs were found in the program code that creates steamlocomotive.info. Both of these were fixed and users no longer see bogus error messages when trying to upload a phone for a locomotive.
