Hungarian class M41/418 from Feri Hubert

Post by Marquette »

A gentleman in Hungary by the name of Ferenc Hubert produces small-batch runs of Hungarian locomotives; so far he's made M40, M41, V43, and V63 - the latter three being three quarters of the most common railway power in Hungary, so if you want to model MÁV they're essential.

I'm not sure what the body is made of but I'm guessing resin, and it's mounted on a Tillig V100 chassis. He takes requests too, for running numbers: the prototype of my model pulled my train this past summer from Balatonfüred to Székesfehérvár.

I think it looks fantastic, I'm very satisfied; it costs 71000 forint ($238 US at the moment), which I think is very fair.

The only complication is that Mr Hubert refuses to ship - he'll only deliver in person; I'm fortunate that I could ask a relative to pick it up for me (according to whom Mr Hubert ia very lovely person).

Edit: Both the as-built (M41 2100/418 100 srs) and the remotored (M41 2300/418 300 srs) versions are available; mine is the remotored version.

Edit2: I found the original instruction sheet in the box under the foam. Chassis is Tillig V100.

He's presently making M41s, and he told me he'll be making a new batch of V43s in the new year.

@ConducTTor - well you're not wrong, it *is* an issue, unless you know someone there who can meet him...

@RodTT - anywhere in Budapest!

I'll hold-off buying for now...
but if I was to run anything during the TT-Tracks "European session'... it HAS to be Hungarian.
I have a Piko GySEV Taurus... and a -really- old BTTB M61 NoHab (that pre-dates DCC by decades!)

BUT -- An offer:
If anyone wants to order from Feri Hubert with local Budapest delivery...
I can provide the contact details for our place in Budapest District 18 - PestSzentLőrinc via PM.

A long-time family friend is staying there, and could take the delivery...
As a back-up; Katalin's Mother is one block away.

Serious inquiries only... Please.

You've seen my TRAXX... I'm looking at DCCifying and getting a sound decoder into my M41... and planning to get a V43 just as soon as they become available... we'll take over the European part too lol... SP and MÁV (well and GySEV. Do you have coaches for your Taurus?)

None...
The thought of actually running MÁV and GySEV had never occurred to me before this thread!

I only have the engines because:
  • They are Hungarian
  • I couldn't leave Deák Modell in Budapest empty-handed...!!!
