Among the sharp directives issued by People's Commissar of Transport Kaganovich, the decree of 16 June 1937 appears odd, because it suggests concrete measures to finance housing at the stations Obluch'e, Khabarovsk 1, and Khabarovsk 2, and public works at the railroad settlements at the stations Pervaia Rechka, Arkhara, Obluch'e, Bira, Birobidzhan, In, and Viazemskaia.
