The top station was rebuilt in a way that is uncommon in Hungary, though very well known in Western-Europe: two trains can call at the same platform, so passengers don't need to cross the tracks, while any of the two trains can leave and the locomotive switch sides without the need to shunt with the other train. It should be adapted by standard-gauge engineers, for example they could solve the problem that at Székesfehérvár station they are going to have many hundred metres long platforms for solo railcars.
