Express diesel train set MA, ("Lyntog", lighting train), enters one of the Great Belt ferries at Nyborg Station. The train was a modified version of the German TEE train, acquired by DSB in 1963, withdrawn 1990. Note that it is only one half of the train. The Danish Lyntog was made of two half-train sets. This was necessary because the train was too long to enter the ferry in one piece, but it was also practical since the train then could go from the only city with more than a million inhabitants in Denmark, Copenhagen, to several smaller destinations in the rest of the country. Today, the MF (IC3) train sets are used the same way.
