Next up, Hungary. When I visited Budapest in November, for just a day, I somehow managed to buy nine models. Nine. I was very pleased, but my wallet? Not so much. But what did that trip get me? Well... I told myself, before going, that if the store I visited had a Nohab in store, I would buy one. They had at least three Nohabs available. So I got one.
M61 020, the last of the original 20 delivered new to Hungary.

Also, before I went on my trip, I had spoken to a manufacturer in Budapest about some custom made railcar trailers. No power cars, just the trailers, as I had found an interesting picture on Google that I wanted to recreate. He was happy to help, and here is the result: four Bzx type trailer cars to be pulled behind one of my V43's.

As for the "new kid on the block," well... It was another one of the countries my friend and I passed through on our trip through eastern Europe. And this purchase, made this past Saturday, was one lucky find. DCC, sound decoder, for under 7000 rubles. I just had to have it. Ladies and gentlemen I give you...
ZSSK 754 055-2!

But here's the most interesting part of this purchase. I photographed a few of these locomotives when I was in Slovakia, in various paint schemes. Including one similar to this. But going through those pictures, four hours after I purchased the model, I made a little discovery.
