ENG: Shunting locomotives are used to carry out shunting and clean-up operations on the routes of most private and state enterprises of industrial transport in various spheres of activity. In most cases, the power of these locomotives significantly exceeds the pre-determined volume of works, especially if the work has cyclical nature. One of the options for solving the problem of transportation for owners of small industrial enterprises, grain elevators and other similar enterprises may be the presence of their own traction rolling stock. Moreover, its technical and economic characteristics must fully comply with the conditions and volumes of shunting/clean-up operations of the enterprise. Definition of the most rational type of traction rolling stock should be carried out taking into account the available track infrastructure of the enterprise, volumes and organization of shunting and clean-up operations, organization of the system and production cost of maintenance and repair. The authors proposed a technique of comparative analysis of technical and operational indicators for the utilization of various types of traction rolling stock using traction calculation methods and ways to organize the operational performance. This will allow the owner of the industrial enterprise to choose the type of traction rolling stock (locomotive, locotractor or steam-accumulator locomotive), which most closely comply with the conditions of a particular enterprise. At the same time, the company's cost reduction for operation of the traction rolling stock is ensured.
