    Although it was rendered as superfluous for the operations of the railway here, yet another railway station building has survived the threat of deterioration: it is the formerly almost unknown Kenderes now joins the „company” of ornate waiting rooms of the Western Railway Station of Budapest and that of Gödöllő too. Built in 1887, the railway station building was extended by Miklós Horthy, governor then, in the town of Kenderes where he lived at the time and then he had his summer resort. It was built in 1927 and then extended in 1931 by adding a storey and an ornate waiting room for the governor himself. The building of the railway station was qualified as a protected historic building in 2017 as a result of a governmental decree. During the restoration project the overall image of the building was significantly clarified: from the roof, which was given a shell of ceramic similar to the original slate roofing, the ’multitude” of tall and slender chimneys has been removed. The articulating components and the fields have been systematically distinguished by colouring, whilst the former dark brown palette has been replaced by re-manufactured contemporary doors and windows made of larch with a green tint more typical of the historical era. The traces of the ornamental paintwork revealed in the interiors have been conserved and left in fragmentary conditions. The renovation of the building has been completed by the rehabilitation of the premises.
