This is a REPAINT/RESKIN. That means that the package contains only textures and other small improvements added to the main loco. In order for this asset to work you need to have installed the main model of DB BR185.2 ExpertLine.



Step 1 – Make sure that you have the main model (DB BR185.2 ExpertLine) of the loco installed and working.
Step 2 – Download and install this package.



This is a repaint on the Bombardier TRAXX BR185.2 electric locomotive operated by the Hungarian National Railway MÁV. The locomotive was delivered to MÁV in 2011 in a classic blue-yellow scheme with a yellow stripe and it’s purpose was to replace the V43 series in domestic intercity services. MÁV-Start debuted this new livery on the TRAXX MAV 480-003 in 2017. It is another locomotive design in a recent tradition of MAV honouring historical figures from Hungary. This particular red and ivory design is honouring Stephen I of Hungary, also known as King Saint Stephen (Szent István Király) who was the last Grand Prince of the Hungarians between 997 and 1000, and the first King of Hungary from 1000, until his death in 1038.

These locomotives are often used to pull special trains to Şumuleu Ciuc (or Csíksomlyó). It is part of Catholic pilgrimage to this little town in Romania. In recent years, following a deal between the Romanian National Railway (CFR) and MÁV, a number of TRAXX locomotives enter Romania and continue their journey to Bucharest and even Constanta, without changing locomotives at the border, which saves up precious time in the tight schedule of these services.
