Around Budapest
Author: dwatry

Somewhat random shots from my April/May trip around Budapest.  First couple shots are in Üllő, which is on a line heading east and southeast from Budapest toward Ukraine, Romania and Moldova.  Train frequency here is very high - as soon as one train clears you can see the following train approaching.
1)  MAV Class 431 on a train toward Budapest.
2) Double-headed ÖBB Class 1116 dual-voltage locos on a freight heading southeast. 
3) Class 415 Stadler FLIRT EMU heading toward Budapest.

7)  One last Üllő shot - I was not in good position for this, but an eastbound freight rolled through with a Romanian "Constantin Grup" Class 43.

Next couple of shots are at Kelenfold station, which is on the Buda side of the river and is a junction from trains coming from 2 Budapest termini - Keleti and Deli.
8)  Class 431 on train heading to Zagreb - 3rd car is a Croatian (HZ) coach.
9)  GySEV train with a Vectron heading west.

11)  Class 460 electric shunters at Budapest Deli station, which is the smallest of the 3 major central terminals, and the only one in Buda.

Any idea what the "H Start" on the front of the engines is about?

"H" is for Hungary.  I believe START is the acronym for the passenger subsidiary of MAV.
