HistoryEdit

The club entered official Soviet competitions in 1936 Soviet Cup as Lokomotiv Kharkov. It was formed out of the team Krasnyi Zheleznodorozhnik (Red Rail Worker) that existed in Kharkiv since 1923.

In league competitions the team appeared in 1938 playing in the first group of the Ukrainian SSR championship and replacing "Stalinets" team that represented electric-mechanical factory.

After the World War II, in 1945 the team was admitted to the Soviet second tier competitions known as "Vtoraya Gruppa" (Second Group) along with two other teams from the Ukrainian SSR, Kharchovyk Odesa (today Chornomorets) and Shakhtar Stalino.

Lokomotyv was a participant of the Soviet Top League and sometimes is erroneously considered as a direct predecessor of Metalist Kharkiv.

In 1956 the club was replaced by Avanhard Kharkiv (Metalist Kharkiv) and dissolved.
