Red Star Train Graveyard #08 Rust

The eponymous red star has faded by now due to heavy decay. If we're not mistaken this train was one of the most famous steam locomotives of Hungary. Class 424 of the Hungarian State Railways was constructed between 1924 and 1958. The 100 tons heavy vehicles were decommissioned 40 years ago. We don't know much about trains but you don't see a lot of steam engines these days. Especially not when they're that historical!
