Founded in 1919, as ZalDor (abbr. -Rail road), soon after joining the Soviet Lokomotiv sports society it changed its name twice to Lokomotiv in 1936 and Lokomotiv Yuga in 1940. The team played its home games at its own stadium.

The best record of competition was the 17th place in the 1938 Soviet Top League. Also, the club was multiple winner of the Kyiv championships. In 1947 the team was disbanded, by transferring team players to the Lokomotiv Moscow club.
