When I had 8,I used the merger to check for errors. An error was when the image was not horizontally merged(see the bottom right corner? There is a huge error somewhere there,but since that part of the city was only needed because my merger needs equal number of images in every row/column in a matrix,I didnt correct it.). So if the 8 were good,I took an other row/column. And so on,until I got the final,13(row)*9(column) resolution.
i get the procedure, logical
what program did you use, canon merger? didn't heard about it...

btw... i'm looking topic over and over again, it really is amazing detailed and precise... respect for the work

Sensational effort RawLee! I would love to see photos of the national railway. I was in Budapest a couple of years ago and rode on one of those old metro cars and boy was it shaky and loud, but never got to see much of the national railways. Any shots would be greatly appreciated!

Here are the types of trams Budapest uses:

UV
The UV was present in the largest numbers on the streets of the city. Production started in 1955, 375 was manufactured. The name supposedly is the acronym of "új villamos",meaning "new tram".
They stopped running on the 21st of August,2007.
Technical details:
weight:19750kg
length between bumpers:13500mm
length:12600mm
outer width:2300mm
height:3100mm
capacity(5p/m2):94
standard gauge
allowed max speed:50km/h


Ganz tram aka ICS

The tram was designed for Budapest. The ICS name is also an acronym for "ipari csuklós"-industrially bent.
length:26900mm
width:2300mm
height:3100mm
weight:34000kg
capacity: 198/203,from which 40/32 are seats.

Later, they were upgraded,modified, and they became KCSVs. They are the most modern versions of the ICS trams. They are even capable of self-diagnostics.
height:3500mm
weight:34000kg
capacity: 192,out of which 36 are seats.


Tatra T5C5
The Tatras are Czechoslovak trams. The C5s were produced for Budapest. Production started in 1978,and ended in 1984.
Length between bumpers:15 640mm
weight:18 500kg
outer width:2500 mm
capacity:
seats(before reconstruction):28
standing capacity(5p/m2):72
min track radii:20m
max speed:65km/h
Some of the later were upgraded,modified,and they became Tatra T5C5K. The first 2 started testing phase in 2002. They get regenerating breaking systems. They even got a button outside allowing peopl to open its doors without the driver.


Hungaroplan
the Hungaroplan is/was a prototype tram built in 1988. Only 1,5(one and a half) were built.


"Muki"
The "Muki"s are cargo trams in Budapest. Initially they were to service the factories in Budapest after WWI. But since there are no factories in the hearth of Budapest,they were converted to bagging and track-polishing trams. Currently,they are mostly used to transport boogies and tram-parts from one depot to an other. There are only 6 left in Budapest.


Siemens Combino Supra NF12B "Budapest"
The Combino Supra NF12B was exclusively produced for Budapest. It is the longest tram in the world,currently servicing the busiest tramline of the world. There are 40 of the in Budapest.
length:54000mm
width:2400mm
capacity:353,out of which 64 are seats
max speed:70km/h,but it is limited in 50km/h
It has 12 axles. The vehicle is composed of 6 segments. They were manufactured with stainless steel structure,to avoid similar problems Siemens had with ordinary Combino Supras.

I have to congratulate you on the effort you've put into this thread, RawLee! I like the transport system in Budapest, especially the Combino trams and metro line 2, and hope to ride line 4 soon.

You said that Combino is servicing the bussiest tram line in the world. Is that line 4? I don't remember exactly, but there are Combinos on other lines too, right? Or is it just line 4?

Also, are there any plans to buy new trains for HÉV in the near future? The current ones are good, but they're a bit old and I'd imagine they plan to replace them...

The Combinos service line 4-6,which only differ in the last station. And when line 61 and 6 will be unified(in the upcoming years,forming a complete loop),I think Combinos will service those parts of the city too.
About the HÉV...well,the northern and the southern lines will get new vehicles,when metro5 will be built So unknown The eastern line is more unknown than the others

Onto the 1 line it is planned. Weekend is due already there. (Forszírozzák, hogy az egyes villamosvonal felújítása és meghosszabbítása kapcsán beszerzendő új szerelvények is 54 méteres COMBINO-k legyenek ahelyett, hogy alacsonypadlós pótkocsikat kötnek a jelenlegi Tátrák után toldozgatás-foldozgatás elven. A forgalom indokolná a COMBINO-k üzemeltetését azon a szakaszon!)

Good job RawLee!

BTW: You forgot to mention the trams bought from the city of Hannover...

I have no idea. The station is already 3 months behind schedule if they build it with an other technology, but if they will continue with the current one, it will be about 1 year behind schedule. TBM is to arrive there by the end of this year...It is suspected from current news that both the servicing of the TBM's in the stations and their pace of boring will be seriously decreased to avoid paying penalty.
The wall is not in the wrong place because of the future place of the station(it will be at 30m depth,because it will be below the bank of the Danube) but because of the reconstruction of the square.
