Despite being Friday local schoolchildren came to see the Hungarian train. The 2761 017 wearing the old Hungarian coat of arms broke down so the only authentic historically painted NoHAB, the 001 came, but the red star didn't cause any problems with the Ukrainians. Hungarians were allowed to learn on their own language even in the Soviet era, these priviliges were only cut back by the anti-russian government of the recent years, but Hungarian president László Sólyom made them change their minds concerning the Hungarian minority. Now that a Russian-friendly governement formed the problematic laws will most likely be unmade, but Ukraine's going to make a few steps further from the European Union that may prove problematic in the near future.
