There are many reconstruction works currently going on on the network. Here's the first bunch of them:

Monor station

http://www.nif.hu/fejlesztes/373

The station was reconstructed,so that through-trains are allowed 120km/h speed. Underpass for people and road vehicles and wider platforms were also constructed.




Cegléd station

http://www.nif.hu/fejlesztes/369

The station was rebuilt for 140km/h speed,and of course,underpasses,wider platforms.
Before:


After:





Győr station

http://www.nif.hu/fejlesztes/391


The station is on the main line going to Vienna,so its very busy.

At first glance at this picture, I wondered why they built railways on the front of personal house.

The Skanzen is full of personal houses. Its a park,where rural life from all over the country is presented. The station itself is a replica of an existing station.

what do you mean by fastest connections?

i think the fastest average speed from station to station is probably around 100 kph

Theoretically,sections of Budapest-Vienna allow 160km/h,and some sections of Budapest-Szolnok are also 160,but these arent used at that speed,mainly due to the general lack of ETCS in the locomotives.

So most trains on mainlines can go with 120 give or take a few km/hs. On the less used lines,mostly 80-100 is allowed,but there are remote sections that dont even allow 60...and generally stations dont allow high through-speed,but that changes with the reconstruction projects currently running.

Here comes the biggest and post important of railways,the infrastructure!

The main projects are the mainline to Romania(Budapest-Szolnok-Békéscsaba-Lökösháza)


Ferencváros-Vecsés

http://www.nif.hu/multimedia/gallery/752
http://www.nif.hu/multimedia/gallery/765

and the mainline to Slovenia(Boba-Ukk-Zalaegerszeg-Slo).


Bagod-Zalaegerszeg

http://www.nif.hu/multimedia/gallery/775

Zalaegerszeg-Ukk
http://www.nif.hu/multimedia/gallery/757

These were the projects that are currently under construction. But there are more projects that will start soon,which include
Szolnok-Debrecen-Nyíregyháza-Záhony-Ukraine


Budapest-Székesfehérvár


Budapest-Piliscsaba


In the close future,the mainline Győr-Boba will be reconstructed,Budapest-Hatvan-Miskolc is being prepared,Budapest-Esztergom is also being planned.
Most of these projects mean upgrade to 160 km/h and ETCS.

On the other hand,Budapest-Győr-Austria mainline is also being reconstructed partially,although this section was upgraded to the previously mentioned level about 15 years ago,including the ETCS,which was first built here in Europe.
Some stations were not reconstructed,so they dont allow high through-speed,which is why some of the stations are redone on this line.

Here's a nice historical story about 150 years old Debrecen-Miskolc line

translation:

The Tisza-region Railroad was founded in 1856,based in Vienna.In 57,they bought the Cegléd-Szolnok line,which by the end of the same year was extended to Debrecen. In the upcoming years,the main direction of extensions were Transylvania,Arad and Oradea. In 1859 came the next section on the line in question,from Debrecen via Nyíregyháza and Szerencs to Miskolc. The company was in difficult financial state,but luckly the section was among the cheapest ever built due to flat terrain. At that time,the trip from Szolnok to Debrecen was 5 hours,and further 5 to Miskolc(today,the entire route from Szolnok to Miskolc is 2:45). Due to the heavy traffic,after the nationalization in 1880,beautiful station-buildings were built,which were all lost in WWII except the one in Miskolc.

After the war,the line was bisected into Budapest-Debrecen-Nyíregyháza and Budapest-Miskolc-Nyíregyháza,meaning no direct trains from Debrecen to Miskolc.

Electrification first happened on the Budapest-Miskolc-Nyíregyháza line,in 1966,the other half following it in 1970.

The old order of traffic was resumed in 2007,since when a "round-IC" travels from Budapest to Budapest,via Miskolc-Nyíregyháza and Debrecen,the entire trip taking slightly more than 6 hours.

So when that "round train" departs from Budapest, there is written destination Budapest?

No. Budapest-Nyugati and Budapest-Keleti are the 2 terminals,the train doesnt arrive to the same station it departed from. So it goes like

Budapest-Keleti - Hatvan - Miskolc - Nyíregyháza - Debrecen - Szolnok - Budapest-Nyugati.

It is important to sign the exact station name,as we have 3 main stations. It is signed on every train,even if it uses only 1 terminal.

Bagod-Zalaegerszeg line today has been opened. It was electrified,and was built with 120km/h design speed,partly on new route.

It seems it wasnt electrified,which is strange,as it is a pan-european corridor. Though the developer says its only phase one.

Are there some plans for Budapest city network? The heritage network with bad caracteristics and low capacity have new tasks with medernization of lines. city network like this is the bottle neck of Hungarian and central Europe railway network. Especialy the bottle neck make a lot of Suburban trains. When I came to Budapest train stop 3 times at entering the Keleti, because haritage, bad conception, and to much trains. It is better to don't ask about freight trains.

Belgrade made 1971.-1989. new city network, with ring freight railroad, denivelations, tunels trough central parts of the city etc. But, new network is in 1989. finished 75%, and all devalopment on railway stop at this year. From 1989. to 2009. everything on Serbian Railways only going slowly down from worse to worse.

I think that Budapest need under the Danube direct link from Deli to Nyugati or Keleti. Across the Danube in all Hungary is only 3 tracks + 1 track on brunch railway at the north. The reason for that is the Budapest is very important passenger and freight transit point. The end tracks in stations are only good for local DMU or EMU trains, because of easy entering and exiting a lot of passengers in ground level, and low shuntings, but they are bad for transit trains and loco+wagon trains. Bu this conection, Budapest can reserve the existing bridge across the Danube only for freight + maybe 25-30 min frequency urban line.
