Research help needed

Post by Der Alte Fritz » 05 Nov 2019 09:32

I am looking for the following issues of :

Железнодорожный транспорт - Zheleznodorozhnyĭ transport. [Railway Transport] published by Transzheldorizdat isn: 0044-4448
http://www.zdt-magazine.ru/

Main request is for 2005 Issue 6 Железнодорожный транспорт в великой отечественной войне 1941-1945 годов [Rail transport in the great Patriotic war of 1941-1945]
see here http://www.zeldortrans-jornal.narod.ru/ ... g06-sp.htm

but also for a couple of other issues that had articles:

2005 issue 4: http://www.zeldortrans-jornal.narod.ru/ ... l_2005.htm

2007 issue 9 pages 68-72 ЖЕЛЕЗНОДОРОЖНЫЙ ТРАНСПОРТ В ВЕЛИКОЙ ОТЕЧЕСТВЕННОЙ ВОЙНЕ [Rail transport in world war II] Golovachev https://elibrary.ru/item.asp?id=9539167&

One of my friends works at this factory (produce, among other things, cars for the subway).

I sent him an e-mail regarding the issues of "Railway transport" mentioned by you. If this plant gets such a magazine, he will be able to help you.

Alas, the factory library does not receive such a journal.
However, do not despair. As the Russian saying goes: even from a desperate situation there are at least two ways out. he prompt that this log can find: the CENTRAL SCIENTIFIC and TECHNICAL LIBRARY of the RUSSIAN RAIL TRANSPORT
(CSTL MPS of Russia).
http://www.gpntb.ru/win/elbib/putevod1/Doc3.HTML.
As can be seen since 1990, the journal "Railway transport" enters the Fund of this library. The phone number listed on the website is not currently being serviced.
Since the library is not far from my house, I will probably be able to visit it next week.
How fast do you need these articles?

Today I received by e-mail a copy of the article from issue 9 for 2007 (PDF, 3.5 MB). All very high quality.
For example (on a smaller scale)
p.68 9-2007

Previous two pages
p.66-67 9-2007
zdt_2007_09_66-67.jpg
How can I do you send?
Tomorrow or the day after tomorrow I expect to visit the library to order a copy of the articles for 2005.

That is brilliant Yuri, and the second image shows that we are on the right track with the 2005 articles too which is really encouraging.
Try WeTransfer (https://wetransfer.com/) for sending the files, I will DM you my email address.

This bibliography of railway books (https://docplayer.ru/30622142-Zheleznod ... voyne.html) list the original 1995 article but says that it was published in 1990 as:?
Головачев Г. К.
Подвиг железнодорожников в Великой Отечественной войне / Г. К.
Головачев // Железнодорожный транспорт. - 1990г. N 5. - с. 6

As far as I understand, in issues 4 and 6 for 2005 collected articles from issues of previous years, dedicated to the Great Patriotic War. But we'll soon know for sure.
I sent you a file.

First file arrived safely and looks an excellent copy.

You are right this is an anniversary collection from previous years which (if the listing is correct) will save trawling through acres of back issues.

I will put articles up on my website and post links here so that other people can use them.

Issue 4 2005 contains a special section "Railway transport in the great Patriotic war". This section has its own page numbering (80 pages in total). In the section there is an article from the issue for 1942.
Issue 6 2005 contains materials of the conference devoted to the work of railway transport in the Great Patriotic war. Copies ordered, I believe will be made in the shortest possible time.

Return to “The Soviet Union at War 1917-1945”
