Photographer's Note


A steamie for today: "Lilla", the steam locomotive of the State Forest Railways of Lillafüred, just starting from the terminus Miskolc with a special course (already doesn't work by schedule). This is a Kv-4 type locomotive, which was manufactured from the early 50's to late 70's in countries like the Soviet Union, Hungary, Tczecho-Slovakia, Poland, Finland and China (this piece in Hungary, in 1954).

I captured Lilla (which is, by the way, a female name in our language) on Miskolc terminus. The main-line (14 kilometers long) of the net goes through the famous Lillafüred colony, and ends at Garadna, a ranch in the Bükk mountains, while the 18 kilometers long, rarely used side-line goes through Andókút, a very nice resting place with a source.

More infos on the official site of the railway company (in English, German and French) or on this fansite (in Hungarian).
