The “Locomotives and Locomotive Equipment” chair is created on the basis of two chairs: “Steam Locomotives” and “Repair plants”. The chairs “Steam Locomotives” and “Repair Plants” were organized in 1931 simultaneously with the institute (SAZIIT). The first head of the “Steam Locomotives” chair was a Ph.D. AA Philippov, who in 1934 was replaced by a well-known steam railwayman V.I. Kolosovsky. In 1936 the chair “Steam Locomotives” was headed by Ph.D., associate Professor M.G. Beskrovny, who headed the chair until 1966.
The first head of the “Repair Plants” chair was Professor A.F. Troitsky (from 1931 to 1949) who was replaced by PhD, assotiate Professor D. Ya. Perelman (1949-1972).
In 1935 the “Locomotives” chair was divided and the “Heating engineering” chair was formed, which was headed by PhD A.M. Strusevich till 1960. During these years it was headed by PhD Assoc. Prof. AM Sukhanov (1960-1969), Senior Assistant L.F. Karpukhina (1969-1970), Assoc. Prof. G.N. Strokov (1970-1977), Assoc. Prof. P.A. Fedotov (1977-1980), Assoc. Prof. E.N. Ryzhov (1980-1988).
During the Second World War, at the “Steam locomotives” chair prominent scientists in the field of steam locomotives: prof. EN Mokritsky, prof. NN Struzhenov, prof. I.M. Zolotukhin were working.
In 1957 “Steam locomotives” chair was renamed into the “Rolling stock” and the “Repair plants” chair into the “Maintenance and repair of locomotives.”
The “Rolling stock” chair was headed by prof. P.C. Kruger from 1957 to1962, from 1962 to 1966. Assoc. VN Nikitin, Assoc. GN String (1966-1970), Since1970 the department was headed by prof. A.D. Glushchenko, and after his election an academician in 1984 by the Academy of Sciences of the Uzbek SSR the chair was headed by Assoc. Prof. VN Kiselev until 1994.
The “Maintenance and repair of locomotives” chair was headed by: NK Babayev (1972-1983) B.Sh. Ahmedov (1989-1998).
In 1995 both chairs were united into one under the name “Locomotives and electric transport” which was headed by Assoc.Prof. B.Sh. Akhmedov until 1998.
In 1999 the chair was called “Locomotives”, which was headed by Assoc. Prof. BT Faiziev until 2009.
In 1988, the “Heating engineering” chair was included in of the “Locomotives” chair.
From 2009 to 2010 the “Locomotives” was headed by Assoc. Prof. A.T. Dzhanikulov.
Among the teachers of the chair who did much for its development were Assoc. Prof.: B.I. Vilkevich GI Markovin, S.D. Kucuk, D.V. Scribes, A.V. Tolkachev, G.N. Mukhitdinov, B.C. Alimbaev, V.A. Arrests B.Sh. Ahmedov K.T. Tursunov, A.I. Rempel, V.P. Wigeon, E.S. Ushakov, Y.D. Tadjiev, H.I. Nurhodzhaev, I.P. Gordeev, G.N. Habibiev, S.A. Arustamian.
At present most of the scientific and pedagogical work at the chair is provided by the oldest professors, associate professors B.T. Faiziev, O.S. Ablyalimov.
Staff of the chair pays much attention to the strengthening of material base. Diesel locomotives laboratory, technology repair of locomotives laboratory, the laboratory for the study of heating engineering disciplines were established.
Under the guidance of Prof. B.I. Vilkevich and Assoc. Prof. A.D. Alimbaev laboratories of electric equipment and power transmission of diesel locomotives were created.
Active participation in the creation of the laboratory “Structure and dynamics of the locomotives’ was taken by Assoc. Prof. B.T. Faiziev and senior teachers Abdullayev and Zhulenёv N.V.
Associate Professor Arustamian S.A. established laboratory of automation and production processes automation, locomotives traffic safety classroom.
Active participation in the creation of the chair laboratories was taken by heads of laboratories, engineers G.V.Valiev, V.V. Gritsishin, G.S. Androsov, A.S. Zokirov, Kadyrov A.L.
In 1965 at the “Maintenance and repair of locomotives” chair there was created industrial research laboratory to improve the durability of the parts and components of diesel locomotives (O’NIL), which is now called RL to improve the reliability and technical diagnostics of locomotives.
During this period, the heads of the laboratories were N.K.Babaev, V.N. Postnov, H.I. Nurhodzhaev, A.N. Rempel, G.A. Lukaev, V.A. Arrestov, and since 1988 G.N. Ivanov.
