Our company was founded on 27th of October 2005 with the aim of assisting construction works and modernization of railway infrastructure.

On the 10th of January 2006 we obtained our railway company certification. Gradually we managed to extend our activities to goods transportation. At the beginning we executed orders only within the boarders of Hungary but immediately after the market liberalization we started to move our operations over the boarders. Today we have experience in transporting goods to Romania, Poland, Bulgaria, Croatia, Slovenia, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Serbia, Germany, Netherlands, France, Italy, Ukraine, Montenegro, Greece etc.

In 2008 we already transported 5 times more than the year before, and 10 times more tons/km. In 2009 we doubled the tons of transported goods in 2008, and tripled the tons/km.

Even in full recession our growth continued in 2010 and in 2011 on of the biggest railway companies in Hungary. In 2011 we’ve assisted the most of infrastructural works. This was continued in 2012.

In 2013 we’ve transported over 1,5 million tons of good and in 2014 we shook expectiation by a record 3,4 million tons. In 2015 we wanted to access the next level so by the end of the year we alreay operated our own freights in Croatia by opening and authorising our Zagreb branch.
We operate our own fleet, we have multiple types of wagons, our personel is qualified for any railoperation and are backed up by intervention and maintenance teams.

Train Hungary Magánvasút Kft strategy:
Having on mind that the specifics of Hungarian transports are greately influenced by the markets of neighboring countries the most important task is to analise cooperations conditions and to have daily contact with railway operators with interantional transports.

Of course it is not about a “one sided” relationship. Unlike other operators from Hungary we gained advantage thanks to quality and advantegous fares. We do transports that are going through Hungary, come in Hungary, go out of Hungary and as so we have experience with countries like: The Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Ucraine, Russia, Romania, Bulgaria, Croatia, Republic of Serbia, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Kazakhstan etc.

Our aims are to investigate clients needs in these countries and also to reasearch new market opportunities.
The new tendency in Europe is to do a transport from A to B in 1-2 days. As we take this to heart after we accespt a request we consider we have 1-2 days to fulfill the order and finish transport.
Train Hungary is designed to give quality services in a very short time.
