More GySEV/Raaberbahn news. They refurbished some old ÖBB first and second class IC cars and they look quite comfy I must say:

A márciusban vásárolt kocsik első három példánya (összesen huszonhat, 21-90-es sorozatú kocsi érkezett a sógoroktól) Dunakeszin kapott teljes ráncfelvarrást, a belső tér és a külső festés is eltér kissé az eddig megszokott arculattól, ám a zöld-sárga színvilág természetesen megmaradt.

A tizenegy fülkés, eredetileg másodosztályú kocsik egy részét, nyolcat 31-90-es sorozatú, első-másodosztályú kocsivá alakíttatja át a GYSEV, az első osztályú szakaszokban elegáns bőrülések, üvegpolcok, szőnyeg és függöny gondoskodnak az utaskényelemről. Természetesen Dunakeszin az összes másodosztályú ülést is újrakárpitozták, a klíma és a zárt rendszerű WC már eredetileg is adott volt. A fülkékben mobiltelefonok, laptopok töltését szolgáló konnektorokat helyeztek el, az ingyenes wifi most már természetes.

A GYSEV a kocsikat saját fejlesztésű, pontkijelzős iránytáblákkal szerelte fel, a kijelzőkön a vonatszám, a kocsiszám, a célállomás és a megállási helyek jelennek meg. Az első három jármű után még az ősszel, fokozatosan áll forgalomba a többi huszonhárom felújított kocsi is.

I love that at least a few countries (Poland, Austria, Hungary) seem to not have thrown the compartmented carriage completely to the dustbin of history.

Máv-Start to buy double-decker EMUs

MÁV-Start invites bids for high-capacity EMUs

MÁV-START, Hungary, issued a call for tender on December 10 for the supply of up to 10 high-capacity EMUs under a framework agreement for a total of 40 trains. Each train will have at least 600 seats which implies that the EMUs will likely be double-deck.

MÁV-Start has not given bidders much time to respond, as the closing date for tenders is January 13. Bids will be assessed according to a points system, with 60% of the score based on price. The winner will have to arrange for the trains to be certified and then place them into service, and conduct training.
Once the contract has been signed, MÁV-Start will need to order at least 10 EMUs and will have an option to exercise orders for batches of at least three trains with a total of 30 further trains available for order within 96 months of signing the original contract. The project will be funded by the European Union.

MÁV-Start currently operates 123 EMUs built by Stadler Rail and 10 supplied by Bombardier, while GySEV has 10 Stadler EMUs for services within Hungary with a further 10 on order.

Sorry if it was discussed before, but were the upgraded lines in Hungary (the one for 160 or 140 Km/h) complete reconstructions from the ground up or just overhauls?

Hi!

What do you exactly mean? The line no. 120 between Szolnok-Békéscsaba is almost brand new (the trackbed too I guess), the Vmax is 120 km/h recently but it will be authorized for 160 km/h. They built new and higher speed turnouts, also modified track alignment (the curve radius somewhere not matched with the planned 160 km/h), new or even relocated stations, raised platform heights, new bridge over the river Tisza near Szolnok, second track built in some location etc.
However the alignment was already almost full straight inbetween the stations thus mainly the same as before.
I hope I havent said anything wrong may somebody revise me and correct me if necessary and also hope it is what you wanted to know.

I mean completely demolishing the old line and building basically a new one in the same place, like in Romania. What about the Budapest-Hegyeshalom line?

If it weren't in Hungary then I would have thought these were new sprinters for the Dutch Railways

GySEV orders Vectron locomotives



EUROPE: Hungary to Austria cross-border operator GySEV has signed a contract for Siemens to supply five Vectron locomotives, with an option for a further four. The firm order announced on March 17 covers three triple-system electric locomotives, and two dual-system locomotives with last-mile engines.

The locomotives will be equipped with ETCS Level 2 and suitable for use in Austria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Germany, Romania, Serbia and Slovakia. They are expected to enter service this summer, initially on international freight routes and later on inter-city passenger services from Budapest to Sopron and Szombathely.

The order is being financed with a €40m loan from the European Investment Bank, guaranteed 80% by the state and 20% by OTP Bank.

Stadler selected for high-capacity EMU contract for MÁV-Start



HUNGARY: Sole bidder Stadler Bussnang has been selected for a framework contract to supply high-capacity electric multiple-units, national passenger operator MÁV-Start announced on March 17.

Further negotiations will now take place before a firm order is signed.

MÁV-Start called tenders in December for the supply of up to 40 EMUs over eight years. These are to be used to increase capacity on suburban routes around Budapest, and specification requires at least 600 seats per unit, making the use of a double-deck design likely.

The order is being financed from EU sources.

MÁV-Start and Stadler sign double-deck EMU framework contract

HUNGARY: A framework agreement for the supply of up to 40 Kiss double-deck electric multiple units including a firm order for an initial 10 was signed by national passenger operator MÁV-Start and Stadler on April 12. Stadler said these would be the first double-deck vehicles in Hungary when they enter service from spring 2019.



MÁV-Start had called tenders in December for the supply of up to 40 high-capacity EMUs over eight years, and the start of negotiations with sole bidder Stadler was announced on March 17. The framework contract covers the purchase of an initial 10 units worth €195m, including training and spare parts, and an agreement enabling MÁV-Start to place further firm orders subject to the availability of European Union funding.

To provide operational flexibility, the Kiss EMUs will be compatible with the 123 single-deck Flirt EMUs which Stadler has delivered to MÁV-Start over the last 10 years. The six-car Kiss units will be 155·88 m long, 2 800 mm wide and 4 600mm high, with 600 seats to provide a 50% increase in capacity compared to a single-deck unit of the same length. They will have with four toilets, one being accessible for persons with reduced mobility, and multifunctional areas for four wheelchairs as well as 12 bicycles or five pushchairs. There will be a ‘state-of-the-art’ passenger information system, and free wi-fi.

The 25 kV 50 Hz EMUs will have national and ETCS Level 2 train control systems, and will be able to run at up to 160 km/h on suitably upgraded routes.

The initial batch of EMUs is primarily intended for use on the Budapest – Vác –Szob and Budapest – Cegléd – Szolnok routes, but they will also be deployed around Debrecen and Nyíregyháza on weekends and around Lake Balaton and Lake Velence in the summer season, when the number of cycle spaces can be increased to 24. Future orders would include units for use on the Budapest – Újszász – Szolnok and Budapest – Hatvan – Gyöngyös routes.

MÁV begins manufacturing coaches for international services

HUNGARY: National railway holding group MÁV has started series production of locally designed inter-city coaches for international services.

The Hungarian government decided in April 2016 that it would provide financial assistance for MÁV to manufacture 20 hauled passenger coaches for international traffic plus a further 100 for domestic use. The vehicles are branded IC+ and are to be assembled at MÁV’s Szolnok workshops.

The 20 IC+ vehicles being supplied for international traffic will be suitable for operation up to 200 km/h and will include domestic content of at least 50%. Half the cars will be second class saloons and the others multi-function vehicles; all will feature USB ports and power sockets. Two prototype coaches were produced in 2014-15 to ensure compliance with EU Technical Specifications for Interoperability; these are currently being trialled on Budapest – Praha – Berlin trains. The first of the series-built cars is expected to enter service in early 2018 with all 20 in traffic by the end of the year.

From mid-2018, MÁV will begin producing the domestic coaches; these will be designed for operation at up to 160 km/h. The company also intends to ramp up its ongoing fleet refurbishment programme, which so far has seen more than 500 coaches modernised. Future priorities include overhaul and refitting of 40 Metrowagonmash DMUs and 30 of its fleet of more than 200 Bzmot diesel railcars.

Haven't taken the EC Hungaria anytime recently. Has anybody here field-tested the new type of coaches and can tell us if they are any good?

I was driving along the North shore of Balaton last week and wondering about the railway there. In all that time I don't think we saw any passenger trains and the line looked kind of dated... Is it actually being still fully used including for vacationers from Budapest coming to the resort towns? Any future developments along that corridor?
