The BVmot (at the end of the train – initially designed for interurban intercity trains) and BVhmot (at the front – meant to be the successor of loco-hauled commuter trains) classes could have been a new beginning for the Hungarian rail vehicle production after the regime change. Both equipped with identical, back then ultramodern computer-directed electronic systems which allow EMU’s from different classes to work together (as pictured), they set a new standard for Hungarian rail vehicle designers. However, immature technology and the lack of money in the mid ‘90s continuously led to breakdowns. Despite the fresh new design and the modern technology, BVmots and BVhmots are rather unreliable. Today, the last operational BVmot and BVhmot is working long-haul passenger trains on the line Budapest-Kelebia, travelling at a mind-blowing speed of 80 km/h…

It is always a pleasure when British railfans come to visit Hungary. They tend to visit interesting places with their special trains, sometimes hauled by locos that usually do not work passenger trains. With focus on private operator Floyd's ex British Rail locomotives, they travelled across Hungary in early July 2015, visiting lines with no regular passenger operations. In this picture, the special train rolls on the abandoned line 77 (Vácrátót-Galgamácsa), which has been out of service since 2007.
Sadly, the locomotive suffered critical damage in an accident last autumn near Nyúl, in which the engineer passed away.
