Shunter TEM TMH was made by Vilnius Locomotive Repair Depot on 2008. VLRD cooperated with Czech Republic company CZ LOCO and TRANSMASHHOLDING (Russia) for production of this locomotive.
Companies focused on effective operation of shunter at a very low temperature – up to minus 50°C/122°F. The reason for it, was that TEM TMH was produced for Russian market. Therefore certain elements such as advanced thermal protection or stainless steel piping were introduced for locomotive.
60 units of TEM TMH were made in total for Lithuania, Russia and Estonia.
