Travel summary:

New and very smart looking trains for Hungarian InterCity express services are on the way, they're currently being tested, but for the time being these current IC trains provide a comfortable, but comparatively basic service.

Catering facilities, Wi-fi, bike spaces and wheelchair spaces are all absent from the coaches used for these train services - reflecting the fact that they date back to the 1980s.

More modern trains, which are equipped with Wi-fi and have both bicycle and wheelchair spaces, are being used on some of the slower, non InterCity services, and these trains provide an alternative on some IC routes, including Budapest - Debrecen and Budapest - Gyor.
