Remarks & Notes 
Hungary's only cogwheel tram, line No. 260, marked as BKV tram line 60. It' a 3,7km long stretch between Városmajor and Széchenyi-hill, on weekdays its fairly empty, but there're many hikers on weekends, going for a trip to Buda hills. On the photo; EMU #56+66 starts to descend on a foggy xmas morning. I was the only passenger who came up with it, and it left empty. EMUs are made of a motorcar(56) + cabcar (66) consist, always the motor unit facing the valley. BKV ordered 7 of the austrian SGP (Simmering, Graz & Pauker) made EMUs in 1973. The power comes from overhead wire, supplying 1500V DC, gauge is 1435mm with a Strub rack system.
