The 5th and the newest "Werbelok" in Hungary is MÁV-START 480 004. This locomotive commemorates the 200th Birthday of Gábor Áron, the famous national hero during the revolution and independence war in 1848-1849. The livery was designed by István Zachar and was chosen during a contest.
The locomotive was presented today in Budapest-Nyugati. Afterwards it went out for its revenue service in this livery: IC 1565 "Kócsag" from Budapest-Nyugati to Nyíregyháza.
This locomotive will soon pull the pilgrimage train "Történelmi Székely Gyors" from Budapest to Csíkszereda/Miercurea Ciuc in Romania. Interesting: from Debrecen to Cluj Napoca it will run together with a Hungarian and a Romanian diesel locomotive, because this section is not electrified. - PH
