MÁV Acquires Used Austrian Trains
Austrian state railway company ÖBB has delivered 10 used carriages to its Hungarian counterpart MÁV, which have undergone an overhaul and are ready for use. MÁV Start CEO György Záránd said Hungary agreed to buy 55 Lange-Schlieren trains with a maximum speed of 140kph from ÖBB after the Austrian company bought trains capable of 160-180kph.

After the reconstruction of lines, Siófok will be accessible by rail from Budapest in just over 70 minutes and Székesfehérvár in 39 minutes, Záránd said.
