The train will call at Budapest-Kelenfold station around 10 mins before arriving at Budapest-Keleti.
If the end point of your journey in Budapest is on Metro Line 4, or has an easy connection from Line 4, then leave the train at Kelenfold station and transfer to the Metro there.
Not only will your journey be quicker overall, the Metro transfer at Kelenfold is much easier, than at particularly if you have luggage.
Why are there are no images of this journey? Well on the last two occasions when we travelled from Salzburg as far as Vienna it was pouring with rain.
Though what we did glean is that this journey becomes less memorable, the further the train travels, the most scenic part of the journey is between Salzbug and Linz.
The views from the train window between Vienna and Budapest are exceptionally uninteresting, where the only thing of note to see are the wind turbines.
So having something to read or watch is highly recommended.
