    During a fantastic long weekend trip to Hungary with my close friend TBM, and after a long list of annoying failures (the secca in Budapest appears to be very good and in even the derpiest of derps, though usually fairly pleasant and accepting but insist they must let you go), we successfully explored this fantastic collection of Soviet and probably pre-soviet trains, most of them COLOSSAL! And all sadly left to rot in this Budapest depot.

    It was a relaxed day despite being nestled within the live grounds of a train depot, we kept to ourselves and no one seemed too bothered. I myself am not a huge trainspotter but adored this place. Some trains here have allegedly been used in Auschwitz!!

    Here we have it, the rotting Red Star trains of Communist Commuting.

    And finally…. Well it would have been rude not to when we were in an ex Soviet Union country, and many here who saw my Chernobyl report would have seen the Lada!

    So we rented this TWO STROKE Goddess TRABANT complete with tour guide who was able to assist with the odd column set up, and take us for some exploring!

    Those trains look incredible, sad they are left to rot but it adds to the experience!

    I was in Budapest a few weeks ago. I actually scouted this place, walked for miles to find an entry, only for the sun to set by the time I found it. I didn't have a tripod so I'll have to come back to at some point.

    Is it just me but has some of the trains been disassembled? Previous reports show the front of the train with a red star (hence the name), but it seems to be missing in your pics. Would be a pity if the locals or worse, visitors, are taking souvenirs.
