Board the narrow-gauge Children’s Railway on Hegyhát út. The railway (with eight stops) was built in 1951 by Pioneers (socialist Scouts) and is now staffed entirely by schoolchildren aged 10 to 14 – the engineer excepted. The little train chugs along for 11km, terminating at Hűvösvölgy 45 minutes later. Departure times vary depending on the day of the week and season; see website.
