In the Skovorodinsky district of the Amur region, festive events are held dedicated to the 40 anniversary of the Baikal-Amur Mainline, the governor’s press service reports. This area is directly related to the great construction, because as early as in 1932, the first work on the construction of the tracks began from the BAM station on Transsib located in Skovorodinsky district.

In April 1932, the first resolution of the Council of People's Commissars "On the construction of the Baikal-Amur Mainline" appeared, which approved the construction plan for the BAM. At the first stage, work on the construction of a new highway was carried out at the connecting section from the BAM station on the Transsib (in the Skovorodin region) to Tynda (180 kilometers), which was opened in 1937. The BAM station was founded in 1933. Now about a thousand people live in the village.
