[HU] Third-batch ÖBB Vectrons on tests in Hungary

With batch number three already in progress, Railcolor News has been closely monitoring the latest ÖBB Vectron developments. Today we see a couple of these locomotives on tests in Hungary.

Hungary’s Hegyeshalom – that special place where some of the newest European crossborder locomotives appear for tests. Today, a pair of brand new ÖBB Vectrons makes its debut under the sunshine, as seen through the lens of Norbert Tilai:
