Railways - Hungary: books - history and rolling stock

Books on the history, locomotives and other rolling stock of MÁV (Magyar Államvasutak) and other railway companies in Hungary.

Loks der Ungarischen Staatsbahnen MÁV - Seit 1945 (Typenkompass)

Die Geburtsstunde der ungarischen Eisenbahn war das Jahr 1846. Während dieser Epoche eroberte die Eisenbahn ganz Europa und natürlich auch Ungarn. Die meisten Besucher Ungarns verbinden mit dem Land jedoch nicht die Eisenbahn, sondern eher Begriffe wie Balaton, Puszta und Paprika. Zu Unrecht, denn Ungarns Staatsbahn bietet nicht nur viele Verbindungen ins ganze Land, sondern den Eisenbahnfreunden auch einen interessanten Triebfahrzeugpark, der von der historischen Dampflok bis zum modernen Dieseltriebwagen reicht.
Den Wandel und die Typenvielfalt stellt Thomas Estler in diesem Typenkompass kurz und kompetent vor.

Hungarian Railways

Hungary offers the railway photographer a wealth of different trains to document; alongside the state railway operator MAV there are a number of private companies operating all over the country, such as GYSEV, Floyd and AWT.

There are also a number of locomotives from the seven countries that border Hungary that work deep into the country. Floyd is a company well known to British railway enthusiasts because of the former British Rail Class 86s and Class 56s that it operates. The Class 86s were built in the 1960s and still operate freight trains for Freightliner UK. The 1970s-built BR Type 5s also still operate in Britain for Colas and DCR spot hire. In Hungary these locomotives are used for mainly transporting grain and fuel trains.

Dave Smith and Steve Madden offer an overview of the diversity of the Hungarian railway scene over the past decade, from the 1960s-built Class M40 diesel locomotives to the recently introduced Class 471 Vectron electric locomotives.
