We can travel back in time t as far as 2008., and have a look at the Hatvan-Somoskőújfalu railway's state in those years. The class 6341 sprinter DMUs are the same today, but freight traffic was a lot different, there were real locomotives to be found. Of course, my photography technique was a lot different those days, so you will need some patience clicking through this gallery - you may want to try the brand-new Scrollable travelogue view.

Let's start the gallery with the image anyone could see on any weekday from the furthermost platform: the Sprinter preapring to leave to Somoskőújfalu, the classic M43 as station shunter, or often waiting for a local freight, and first generation rebuilt Bhv cars from the Szolnok or Dunakeszi yard, still wearing their grey with blue-and-yellow-stripes liveries. We had a regular timetable with the 11 minutes connection, same as today, so mostly the same view would welcome the freshly arrived train enthusiast nowadays - what is different, is what makes it worth publishing this album with these old photos of questionable quality and composition.
