Special train of British railfans on the abandoned line 77



storyIt 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.
