Description: The train SR VL22M Satsire is a diesel-electric locomotive built in the Soviet Union in the 1960s. It was designed for heavy freight and passenger service on the Transcaucasian Railway. The name Satsire comes from the Georgian word for a mythical bird that symbolizes strength and speed. The train has a distinctive red and white livery and can reach a maximum speed of 100 km/h.

In what presumably is not a coincidence, there is a type of satellite that is also called the SR VL22M Satsire. It was launched by the European Space Agency (ESA) in 2023.
