@Kempy72 Since the pandemic have started these services didn't see much patronage, direct rail transport has been suspended between HK and mainland China and the HSR brought miserable numbers in its first year of operation, so it was a kind of expected measure from MTR.

@Kempy72 Can be used between destinations. In this case between Szeged and Hódmezővásárhely, only the downtown sections are electrified (which are basically tram lines). The purpose of this vehicle is to provide a transfer-free connection between heavy rail and urban light rail (tram).

@Kempy72 Almost 20 years ago they also had trial runs with a Siemens Combino, then eventually they trashed the overhead wires because they are too "20th century". However in terms of aesthetics, Kaohsiung (and most of the TW cities) have much bigger issues than some wires.

@Kempy72 Maersk summed up the power supply pretty well. It's based on CAF's Acumulador de Carga Rápida (ACR) system. Interesting thing, that the newer Alstom trams are using the same system that CAF built.
