Construction of the original Elisabeth Bridge (Erzsébet-híd.) Lasted 1897-1903! The bridge was named after Elizabeth, Empress of Austria and Queen of Hungary, wife of Francis Joseph I assassinated in Geneva in 1898. Its 290-meter span over the Danube, made it the longest suspension bridge in the world. Blown up by German troops at the end of WW II, it is the only Danube bridge in Budapest that was not rebuilt after the war. Instead, a new bridge was built between 1960 and 1964.

These are what the Elisabeth Bridge in Budapest looked like in the past. Elisabeth Bridge under construction, 1902 The old Elisabe.

A shunting accident on 4th October 1962, saw a 10 carriage-section of a train crash through its buffers, across the platform of the Nyugati (Western) Railway station, though the glass facade designed by Gutav Eiffel, and right out onto Lenin Boulevard (nowadays Teréz Körút) through the quick action of the rail staff, and the use of the loudspeaker, passengers were warned away, and there were no fatalities.
