A Video looking at variety of Hungarian narrow gauge railways, a state operated MAV line, some AEV forestry lines, and some industrial narrow gauge lines.

The state railways (MAV) own several narrow gauge railways and the line at Kecskemét is one of these. One of the infrequent trains hauled by the MK48 locos is followed to Kiskorös. An unusual railway is seen at the Tömörkény fish farm using standard C50 locos. Csömödér is the base for the most active of the current forestry railways with both passenger and timber traffic present. Both types of operation using the C50 locos are recorded. The cameras move to nearby Lenti before visiting the new connection that now joins these systems together to form the largest narrow gauge network in the country. At Sentes a small rustic brickworks still relies on an internal narrow gauge railway for moving bricks about with small 4w locomotives. Lastly the forestry system at Kismaros is visited, and a trip is taken up to Királyrét with one of the MK48 locos.
