A slow local train approaching the train stop of Zamárdi by the coastside of Lake Balaton. The locomotive is an old class 433. This type,
originally called V43, was built in Hungary by Ganz-Mavag with the help of a European wide consortium including the companies Siemens, Alsthom, AEG,
M.F.Oerlikon, Brown-Boveri and seven other smaller companies. The machines were built under a long time, 1963 to 1982 in 379 copies. The machine
weighs 80 tons, has a maximum speed of 120 km/h and a very modest power rating of only 2200 kW. They are now rapidly being pushed aside and being
replaced by Bombardier's new TRAXX locomotives shown above.
