Sažetak

Narrow gauge railways played an important role in the development of countries during the industrialisation process at the end of 1860s and at the beginning of 1870s. Countries like Japan and Switzerland, which are among the leaders in the field of modern industrial technology today, together with Hungary, achieved the fastest dynamic industrial development before the World War I. The 20 000 km long national railway network in Japan is of 1056 mm gauge. Switzerland also had a large narrow gauge (1000 mm) network. In 1918, Hungary had a 6700 km long narrow gauge network together with an 18 000 km standard gauge network. In the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the 760 mm gauge network in Bosnia and Herzegovina was 1700 km long. After the World War II, one third of the Hungarian railway network was still narrow gauge. The operation of narrow gauge network created special requirements and tasks for the Hungarian steam engine builders.
