Remarks & Notes 
MÁV's track reconstructer company's GM-EMD Nohab unit 2761 017-9 and Romanian State Railway's ASEA licence built 040 0919 lead their special train with hundreds of pilgrims aboard upon the famous Caracau viaduct. At this picture, the train transports the enquirers back home after the ribbon cutting ceremony of the renewed control tower at the former border of Hungary. Before this day, the train carried the pilgrims to the famous annual catholic pilgrimage to Sumuleu Ciuc (Csíksomlyó), catholics from all over Transylvania and Hungary gather here. The train was orginased in the framework of a 4 day train trip. Since 1944, Hungarian locomotives had been banned from Romania, they were only allowed to the first station after the new border. Foreign locomotives are also very rare at the Romanian railways. So thats why the Hungarian special train was very very special...
