  • The most fulfilling railway vehicle exhibits in Budapest is the Railway Museum or the park. The day when I visited was not open to the public at the event (the Family car exhibition), but I was allowed to enter in the body to participate in the event paid. There is only Hungary of the railroad power and is worth seeing. You can see a large number of vehicles around the two turntables. The description is only about the spec, but a lot of quirky vehicles. However, the vehicle of the outdoor exhibition is severe pain, I do not know whether the exhibition or scrapped yard. And high-speed diesel car that was prevalent before the war, at any rate from the Steam machine electric large output, such as rotary snowplow with a small room of a smokeless steam locomotive or mystery, such as a motor car remodeling passenger cars, there are many things that are not seen in the Japan do not get tired. Access to 30 or 30A Ream bus is frequent from the center of the city. You can ride from Hero Square or East station on subway Line 1. About 10 minutes walk from the bus stop. The location is very convenient.

  • An outdoor exhibition is the main railway museum. Vehicles from more than 100 years ago are on display. You can enjoy the model railroad in the vehicle to the right just after entering the gate.

  • Great collection at this museum! Well worth a visit! Looks like it'd be great for children with the miniature railway and other attractions. Could use a little more English, and other language, information around but it's easy to understand the information signs next to each exhibit. Be sure to go by Tram 14 from the city and a short walk from there.
  • Had a lot of fun walking around and seeing some of the vintage railway cars and locomotives. Would have liked to know more about what we were seeing however aside from the title, everything was only in Hungarian. Definitely not a place that caters to foreign tourists but a cool place to wander for a couple hours nonetheless.
