Local railway firm GySEV upgrades rolling stock
Regional railway company GySEV is reported to be upgrading its rolling stock with both new and used trains, Hungarian daily Magyar Hírlap reported yesterday. GySEV is jointly owned by the states of Hungary and Austria.
GySEV (the Győr-Sopron-Ebenfurt Railway Co.) will renovate 26 used InterCity carriages for HUF 15 million each, which it has just purchased from Austriaʼs state railway company, Magyar Hírlap cited CEO Szilárd Kövesdi as saying. The renovated trains are expected to start operating before the end of this year.
Additionally, ten Flirt multiple units have been ordered by GySEV, which could start operating as early as 2018, according to the paper.
This year, GySEV expects to carry 7.5 million passengers, Hungarian news agency MTI reported.
