Streamlined light express steam locomotive 242.001 exhibited at the station of Püspökladány, in eastern Hungary. Only four of the Class were built between 1936-40, by MÁVAG (Budapest). One of them reached 161 km/h on a test run, the speed record for Hungarian steam engines. They used to haul the Baltic-Orient express trains double-headed between Budapest and the Romanian border at Biharkeresztes. The 4-4-4T engines had a maximum service speed of 120 km/h.
