Hungarian Railway Company To Put Last Of ’KISS’ Trains On Tracks By 2022
All 40 “KISS” double-decker trains state-owned railway company MÁV has ordered from Swiss rolling stock company Stadler will be on the tracks by 2022, chairman-CEO Róbert Homolya said on Saturday, at Nyugati Station, where one of the new trains was on display.

József Kerékgyártó, who heads MÁV’s passenger unit, MÁV-Start, said the first KISS trains delivered would be put on the busiest suburban routes around Budapest, running to the north, along the Danube, and to the south, in the direction of Cegléd and Szolnok.

In three years, all suburban trains around the capital will be either the KISS models or one of 123 single-decker FLIRT ones, also produced by Stadler, he said.
