Hungarian Railways showed new 1st class wagons
The Hungarian state-owned passenger operator MÁV-Start is investing huge amounts of money in the passenger fleet.
After the new Kiss double-decker trains and Flirt single-decker trains, it’s time to introduce the new wagons, informs Railway Supply magazine citing Rynek Kolejowy.
The cars labeled ARmz will be put into operation on 25 October and will remain in the national depots IC Plus for the time being.
The interior of the carriages is very attractive, carpeted everywhere. Conveniences such as traditional chargers, USB and Wi-Fi chargers are there. There is no seating in the bar area, there is a small table by the window.
The carriages are adapted for a speed of 200 km / h, although trains in Hungary do not yet travel at such speeds.
By purchasing new wagons, the Hungarians want to reduce the average wagon age to 25 years. However, it is worth recalling that most of the wagon units in this country have been replaced by modern multi-purpose Stadler units.
In 2017, Hungarian Railways decided to purchase 120 new wagons. They are built in Hungary. Some of them are wagons for international traffic, which can already be found on trains heading to Poland.
