Today’s itinerary

Experience in the station

We arrive at Hajdúszoboszló station about 30 minutes before departure. The station has been recently renovated with hard platforms and underpasses, and the passenger building has also been completely renovated.


You will have to wait in the warmth until the head of station announces the arrival of the train.



The train arrives on Track 1 from… Budapest Keleti. It is thus a Budapest-Budapest loop that our Intercity of the evening makes! Interesting.


Same cabin as in the morning, but packed to the gills.


No particular service in this train, not even a bar or restaurant car.

Arrival and disembarkation

We arrive in Nyugati station with about fifteen minutes of delay on the schedule and under a driving rain.

Bottom line

An uneventful train ride in comfort, as on the outward journey!
