History of CSD (kind of)
« on: September 13, 2021, 09:06:52 AM »
 It is year 1945, the republic of Chernarus is devastated and is in an urgent need off re-establish its transportation system. For that CSD company is founded. Rebuild off the country is slow, the first step is to transport lumber into Kabanino paper mill, which supply Pulkovo printing works. That also needs chemicals from Komarovo refinery. In the end the books are transported to Chernogorsk publishing company.

As a rolling stock, for now class 555 aka ex DR 52 is being gradually put into service: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DRB_Class_52

More updates soon!

The Publishing Company supply chain was improved and the other supply chain of Krasnostav Hopsoda is now also served with beer from Gvozdno brewery.

 Year 1950 and 1951:
New industry chains have opened and are served. Most notably is a shopping mall in Solnychniy with its various suppliers like food factory near Berezino, bakery at Kamishovo, furniture factory ar Chernogorsk or Goods factory at Polana.

 
Increased number of trains led to a necessity to double trucks main railroads. Also, many stations so far with one platform are no longer adequate and has been source of a lot of congestions.







In terms of new rolling stock:
-4 locomotives of a class 476 were purchased as a test of a three-cylinder compound configuration, but they were found difficult to maintain.
-So, instead more reliable locos of class 475.1 were ordered in total of 147 pieces. They are being set to goods train with high bonus and to passengers trains.



-As most of the locos of the class 534 are already set to trains 60 locos of class 433 were added to the fleet.



-Apart from steam power the diesel power is introduced in a form of motor cars of a class M262. 238 pieces were scheduled on local railways and also on a main line from Komarovo to Berezino.
