Mom the Railfan? by shenanigan87 Mom the Railfan? by shenanigan87
My mother, asking the driver of 431 127 for a cab ride! :B

Okay, in reality, a friend of the family left her cellphone at our apartment. And with her father being a former railroader, numerous little shipments have often been sent by handing them to crews who would then hand them over to someone at a designated station. In this case, the driver had absolutely no problem with this little "shipment" from Budapest to Miskolc, and when he even received a little chocolatey gift for his help, his day was made.

Locomotive is of course a classic V43, aka "Szili".

Talk about a win-win arrangement!

(Yay for Mom!)

Interestingly, she didn't notice that I took the pic. Even though I was the only other person on that part of the platform. Must've been veeery sneaky.

A jó öreg Szili.... (nekem akkoris V43 marad mindörökké...., elborzaszt, hogy innentől már csak olyan generációk jönnek, akiknek majd el kell magyarázni, mit jelent az hogy "V43", és hogy miért kellett átszámozni őket... (gombhoz a kabát, TRAXX nagybevásárlás miatt))

Sok német is még régi rend szerint beszél bizonyos mozdonyokról, pl. V200 vagy V90. Sokszor egyszerüen mert könnyebb megjegyezni azokat a 220 és 290 helyett. :XD:

Meg szerintem a betű-szám kombinációkban van valami élet, csak számokkal illetni valamit... Az számomra minden fantáziát mellőz, ráadásul, utálom a számokat, és nem is tudom őket megjegyezni. Nekem itthon a mai 418 az örök életében M41 fog maradni. :D

In all my years as a driver I've never had a request from the like that, Brilliant!

Guess the railroading worlds of Germany or the UK are still a bit different from that of Hungary. That immediately becomes apparent once you spend a few minutes at the station.

I would have been happy to help someone, As long as management didn't get to know They would probably say I was putting passengers lives at risk accepting objects from strangers

I've heard how back in the day, it was no problem to give someone a cab ride, which was against the rules, but as long as nobody knew, nobody cared. These days, everyone uploads everything to twitter and facebook, which then gets the driver in trouble.
