The VL80 is a Soviet built electric AC mainline freight locomotive. The initials VL are those of Vladimir Lenin  after whom the class is named.

The VL80 is a dual-section locomotive composed of two identical units, each resting on four two-axle bogies, powered by eight НБ-418К6 (en: NB-4186K6) electric tractive motors equipped with axle-support suspension.

The use of a single section of VL80 is technically impossible (unlike most Soviet/Russia diesel locomotives which allow this), since not all equipment is duplicated in both sections.
