A pun: tail magnet in Hungarian also means a girl who attracts a lot of attention from males. It was used by the Soviet-built safety system to follow the trains and to find out whether the entire consist has left the track or not. In the meantime the system was replaced by axle counters and the soon to be installed new ESTW will replace every other remnant of the old system. The inscription visible on the first three Desiro units translates as The future is timetabled. Desiro.
