Schlick-Siemens & Halske BKVT #11

23 april 2015 - Budapest, Varosliget: Several people commented on the amazing Budapest `fodalatti` subway car of the pioneer line of 1896, so here is another photo. It looks rather like the insect called a preying mantis, doesn`t it? Note the huge iron chassis bars, just like railway wagons built to carry huge loads in the centre of the vehicle, and the primitive Siemens bow current collector. Inside, it is built almost entirely of varnished wood.

24 april 2015 - Varosliget, Pest, Hungary: When Budapest opened its first subway line in 1897, it was only the third underground electric railway in the world. This is one of the original Siemens & Halske cars built for the opening - as you can see, it will never win any prizes for good looks! However, the line was a great success and these cars ran for many years. Even now, Line 1 needs special vehicles built to the very restricted size of tunnels. By the way - sorry if I have placed this photo in the wrong TWB section, but I couldn`t find where it should go :-)
