The new railway tunnels across the Balla-hegy than runs in a cutting until it emerges over Őriszentpéter town on a plateau. The town is the smallest in Hungary and is about a kilometre from its station. The original railway ran in the middle of the then village, but most of the line is occupied by gardens now and there wouldn't have been enough room to build a border station in town. Also, the lower running line in the curvy Zala valley wouldn't have been fit for the necessary 160 km/h speed.
