MÁV-Start’s spree of colorful, werbelok EuroSprinters continues. 470 005 is the latest one to emerge in a special livery design. With climate changes becoming more and more evident, the timing is perfect for such a design.

Sporting a new two-tone blue livery, 470 005 MÁV-Start is ready to grab the attention of trainspotters across Hungary. And there is more to that than just a nice gradient design.

The locomotive is highlighting this year’s sustainability expo and summit, Planet Budapest 2021. More specifically, its “Heroes of the Future” event – a youth program aiming to raise awareness among teenagers about the importance of living sustainably.

What’s more, this design looks like a good fit for the Connecting Europe Express which launched yesterday in Portugal. Will we see it pulling the special train in Budapest on 19.09.2021? Stay tuned and we’ll find out together.
