Hungary Part 7 — NE out of Nyiregyhaza

2) Epic modernist station.  

1) With lots of bicycle parking. 

3) I was headed for Zahony.  It looks like I had 5 minutes to get to Track 5.

4) Hungary has a lot of these cute little rail buses.  It was a "flyover" country for me, between the mountsins of Austria and the mountains of Ukraine. So I wasn't lingering.  Lots of trains, though, just flat scenery that wasn't particularly exciting for train riding, train watching, or bicycling.  

5) Very pretty day, a nice break after about a month of coldish rainy weather.  

6) A clean and new coach.  No cabins.  Few other passengers.  

Questions, comments, observations?

Bonus photos -- rural bicycle travel 

Apparently Hungary has a very high rate of bicycle use for travel in rural areas, especially in the east.  I haven't verified, but a friend who once lived in Hungary says it is about 1 out of 8 trips are made by bicycle.  Regardless of the actual number, it was good to see people from all walks of life out and about on bicycles.
