Hungary doesn't border Krain. So do you know the highest speed on that line?

Budapest – Belgrade feasibility study on the way
Friday, May 29, 2015



A consortium of Főmterv and Ecoroad has won the tender to prepare the detailed feasibility study for building the Hungarian section of the Budapest-Belgrade high-speed line. The study will cost Forints 527m ($US 1.8m)

It is proposed to rebuild the 350km line with a 200 km/h operating speed, which would reduce journey times by half. The project is estimated to cost $US 3bn, with 85% of funding provided through Chinese investment

I think you will find that they were refugees (a legal status) and therefore not "illegal migrants" although I'd imagine tresspass on the railway is illegal

To be honest, the mistake is quite understandable from the point of view of the refugees (yes, they have a status by international law). Traveling to Budapest via Macedonia, Serbia, and along the southern line from Kelebia, the migrants will have only experienced very slow trains which are easy to dodge. Level crossings are common in many stations along that line and trains pass them accordingly. It is only from Budapest westwards (and on some other modernized lines in Hungary) that they first experience serious speeds on the rail lines.

The cockpit looks outdated for such a new train.

BTW: 0-220 km/h in 33 seconds
