The Baikal-Amur Mainline (BAM) is the largest railway passing through the territory of Eastern Siberia and the Far East in the direction of Taishet - Sovetskaya Gavan.

In 1960-1970s "Lengiprotrans" developed a project of the BAM Chara - Tynda section with a length of about 670 km. The route was laid in the region of the Olekma-Vitim mountainous country through rugged ridges dissected by river valleys.

The institute designed a number of production bases along the Chara - Tynda route. In particular, a depot for technical inspection and equipment for diesel locomotives was developed at the Chara station.
