3200 hp locomotive photographed on 8 May 2014 in the Magyar Vasúttörténeti Park ("Hungarian Railway History Park"). Built by MAVAG (Budapest) in 1954, Works no. 53.
The five 472kW (640hp hourly power) nose-suspended traction motors were built into the bogies, but this design was too complicated and outmoded, which is why MÁV bought only 12 units of this V55 class engine, between 1950 and 1957.
