This is a freight train from LuČenec, Slovakia to Velky Krtis, Slovakia, but because of the terrain, the Slovakians built the railway accross Hungary - something the peace treaty of Trianon allowed them to do. On the Hungarian section they use the tracks of line 78b, a line they helped reinforce using Slovakian rails. After a severe flood in 2006 it was thought the line would not be rebuilt, but because of the Slovakian need for the line (and the regulation of the peace treaty) MÁV rebuilt. Because the Slovakian locomotives didn't have the necessary papers to travel in Hungary, a Hungarian private locomotive was added to the front of the train. Nowadays mostly ŽSSKC locomotives run on the track with the local freight travelling as far from the péage track as Szécsény, where ŽSSKC loads lumber for Hungarian forests (as the Austrian-owned RailCargoHungaria refuses to transport the lumber on the Nógrád network).
