Glory to Railway Workers, Heroes of Socialist Labor, TASS No. 1284, August 4, 1945
1460 x 1167 mm
In silent and anxious nights,
In a blizzard, under the whistling of bombs,
The engine-driver led
His train to the war.
The proud star is a deserved
Award to the hero for his labor.
His long journey ends
With a new triumphant record.
