So we went to take a few shots of the weed killer train. It was waiting for departure at Rákos station, but when the engineer had arrived from Balassagyarmat, he realised that a remotorised M47 was heading it, a type of locomotive he wasn't trained to drive. So they sent a car for him, went back to Balassagyarmat and took M44 501 with which he managed to get to Aszód station by afternoon. After that, the old M44 broke down, so he took a car again and returned by the trusty M47 2041, that finally managed to haul the weed killer train all around line 78 and its branches.
