The majestic-looking Soviet locomotive has an interface to control electric heating cars (the M62s have no train heating capabilities on their own), but this is not used on this line anymore. Trains on the Hungarian section are class 6341 railcars, in the time of photographing there was no more international fast train traffic, but in the end of that year domestic fast trains have been shut down as well - while an almost hourly clock-face scheduleing has been introduced. The Slovakians shut down all passenger traffic on the line from Fülek (Fil'akovo, Slovakia) to Somoskőújfalu, including their domestic trains to Sátorosbánya (Šiatorská Bukovinka, Slovakia).
