Traffic started on the railway line connecting Budapest and Hatvan in the spring of 1867. The Hungarian state gifted Francis Joseph and queen Elizabeth with the castle and demesne of Gödöllő on the occasion of their coronation in the same year and from that time on, the royal couple and their retinue would regularly travel by train to Gödöllő. In order for the king to be able to travel by train from Vienna directly to Budapest, they connected two lines in the vicinity of Kőbánya station creating the royal track called like this even today.
