Trains arrive from all the adjecent lines and depart on all the lines the same time every two hours to provide precise transfer to different directions. This is a good solution from the timetable’s side but often ends up to be problematic with the railwaymen and the technology and infrastructure present at a station. As only MDmots have driving trailers of the trains operated around here, M41s and Bzmots, though could have cabcars, there’s none stationed at Debrecen for them, so it would be chaotic to arrange for all the trains at Mátészalka to change direction as the locomotive or motorcar would have to be switched to the other side of the train, all at the same time. It’s resolved as any train coming from one direction continues its journey the other way only passing through Mátészalka. This Bzmot came from Csenger (took a Bzx trailer from the passanger train from Zajta, the motorcar of which returned immediately to Fehérgyarmat) and will continue towards Vásárosnamény. It cam from East and will leave North.
