MÁV buys rubber-surfaced trains from Israel – but there’s just one problem with them

MÁV buys rubber-surfaced trains from Israel – but there’s just one problem with them

MÁV does not have the opportunity to buy new trains, it stays with used ones.

Magyar Államvasutak (MÁV) has now reached the point of inoperability – also due to a lack of vehicles. Thus, the company finally received permission to purchase used equipment, because the state had no money at all to purchase new equipment. 15 Siemens electric locomotives are already pulling MÁV’s blue and white coaches for rent, mainly on international routes, but MÁV is now planning a more serious purchase – Total Car reports.

MÁV is seriously negotiating with Israel Railways

(Israel Railways), specifically regarding the purchase of DSB MF series diesel locomotives manufactured by the Danish company ABB Scandia.

Between 1990 and 1996, IR purchased a total of 50 units of this locomotive. The three-part trains, called “rubber noses” because of their special design, will soon be removed from Israel’s railways to be replaced by double-decker Alstom locomotives.

IR offered 46 pieces on MÁV,

He was received on this occasion.

In terms of comfort, dynamics and driving safety, rubber-nosed trains are much better than the old Czechoslovakian BZ trains. Besides the fact that buying IR DSB trains sounds good, unfortunately it will only be a drop in the bucket, and will not be enough to significantly raise the standard of the sidelines.
