Return to Lake Balaton for "classics weekend" featuring 628.089 (original engine M62) with ride behind it, 418.148 (original engine M41), M62.194, 628.265, 408.224 (M40), M61.001 NOHAB GM EMD (European version of F units with two cabs), V43.1001. Also including scenes from Budapest Kelenföld and Keleti stations with international sleeper trains.

In one scene the video recording stopped, so I replaced it with photos, in another (M62.194 departure) the audio recorder stopped, so had to use the camera audio. Wrong captions: numbers are meant to read 628.089 for the M62.089, not 618... copy-pasted it twice ;-)
