Hungary offers the railway photographer a wealth of different trains to document; alongside the state railway operator MAV there are a number of private company operating all over the country, such as GYSEV, Floyd and AWT. There are also a number of locomotives from the seven countries that border Hungary that work deep into the country. Floyd is a company well known to British railway enthusiasts because of the former British Rail Class 86s and Class 56s that they operate. The Class 86s were built in the 1960s and still operate freight trains for Freightliner UK. The 1970s-built BR Type 5s also still operate in Britain for Colas and DCR spot hire. In Hungary these locomotives are used for mainly transporting grain and fuel trains.

Dave Smith and Steve Madden offer an overview of the diversity of the Hungarian railway scene over the past decade, from the 1960s-built Class M40 diesel locomotives to the recently introduced Class 471 Vectron electric locomotives.
