Have you had a ride with the PTE 650 jubilee locomotive? Not yet? A train celebrating the 650th anniversary of the foundation of the first Hungarian university has entered into operation at the Western train station in Budapest. Besides PTE IC, a PTE locomotive is now in service for travellers and spreads the fame of the university wherever it goes. The MÁV-START railway company and the University of Pécs jointly decorated the PTE locomotive, which commemorates the founders of the first university.

The Siemens Taurus make vehicle wears its “festive decoration” until 1st of September 2018, and it will travel 340 thousand kilometres on the railway lines of Hungary and Austria – which means it could travel around the world eight and half times. Beside the decoration, a 14th century dance merriment also invoked the medieval ages at the ceremony.
