    Ludmilla from Woroschilowgrad, a Railroader. At its presentation in 1967, the class V 300 heavy diesel locomotive was a status symbol for East Germany's German State Railroad. Due to the comparably late electrification of the DR network, this unit was more successful than its western cousin of the same class - the V 300 was built as a regular production model as the classes 130, 131, and 132. According to the planned economic regulations from the Council for Mutual Economic Assistance (RGW/Comecon), locomotives of this performance class were built in the USSR for all of the member countries. The Russian origin lent these locomotives the nickname "Ludmilla", which railroaders still use laughingly for the DB AG's current class 232.
