* Cherepanov, Yefim Alekseyevich (1774–1842) and Miron Yefimovich (1803–1849), Russian inventors and industrial engineers, father and son.  In 1833-34 they built the first Russian steam locomotive, and then in 1835 – the second one, more powerful.

* Tšerepanovite vedurid olid esimesed Venemaal ehitatud vedurid. Jefim ja Miron Tšerepanov olid isa ja poeg. Esimese veduri ehitasid nad Nižni-Tagili tehastes 1833. aastal ja katsetasid seda 1834. aastal. 1833. a oli Miron Tšerepanov käinud Inglismaal ja näinud seal Stephensoni vedurit. Inglise insener ja mehaanik George Stephenson oli maailma esimese auruveduri ehitanud 1814. a.
