The first steam locomotive railway line was opened on 15 July 1846 between Pest and Vác and this date is regarded as the start of the Hungarian railways.

As a result of the Austro-Sardinian War in the late 1850s all the lines were sold to Austrian private companies

1868 The State Railway founded and the goal was to take over and operate the Hungarian main lines. The branch lines were constructed by private companies.

1884 A new law provided a simplified way to create Railway Companies many small branch line companies were founded

1890 Most large private railway companies were nationalized as a consequence of their poor management, except the strong Austrian-owned Kaschau-Oderberg Railway (KsOd) and the Austrian-Hungarian Southern Railway (SB/DV).
