The first of three days of "Enthusiast's specials" in Hungary went from Budapest to Miskolc with some interesting lines covered en route. Locos were the former 56115, now Floyd 659 002, and "Nohab" M61.001 in top and tail mode with a guest appearance by 449 012 on the line to the Bo Bo factory in Miskolc.
On returning to Miskolc Diósgyőr-Vasgyár after traversing the Bo Bo branch there was a taxi ride to Dorottya utca to do both branches of the LÁEV system to Mahóca and Garadna; this was not without incident when the loco had to be push-started after being shut down during a pause on the first branch.
