[AT/HU/SK] Party! Neusiedlerseebahn welcomes new GySEV Ventus trains

The five newest trains of GySEV have a name: Ventus. The trains were recently delivered by Siemens. As of 05.09.2016, they are used for revenue-earning services in Austria, Hungary, and Slovakia. On a working day, all five 3-car trains are needed. They reach Vienna, Bratislava-Petrzalka/Pressburg-Engerau, Deutschkreutz, Wulkaprodersdorf, Pamhagen and Fertöszentmiklos/St. Nikolaus am See.

But, the trains could not start their normal working career before they were festively welcomed and inaugurated in Seewinkel and on the Neusiedlerseebahn. Many residents took the opportunity to inspect the Ventus trains that will take over from ÖBB Desiro-trains. At many stations along the line, it felt like a carnival! Take a look at the pictures and enjoy:
