    Change in reply by Jeff to Yes, you can do the same trip in the reverse. In fact, that would be more efficient since you'd be doing your stay in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/austria/vienna/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/austria/vienna/index.html">Vienna</a> in between <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/czech-republic/prague/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/czech-republic/prague/index.html">Prague</a> and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/hungary/budapest/index.html" rel="nofollow">Budapest</a>.<br /><br />Trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/prague-to-vienna.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/prague-to-vienna.html">Prague to Vienna</a> can only be reserved within 60 days of an intended departure date.<br /><br />Trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/vienna-to-budapest.html" rel="nofollow">Vienna to Budapest</a> and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/budapest-to-zagreb.html" rel="nofollow">Budapest to Zagreb</a> can be reserved within 90 days of an intended date of departure.<br /><br />You would just follow the procedure I described above to get an idea of the reservation costs and schedules (until the time comes when you can actually purchase the reservations)..

You would be free to board at either station, no matter which one is displayed on your actual reservation document. For your reference, the trains to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/austria/vienna/index.html" rel="nofollow">Vienna</a> stop at the Kelenföld (Kelenfoe) station 15 minutes after they are shown to be departing from the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/hungary/budapest/train-station/budapest-keleti-train-station.html" rel="nofollow">Keleti station</a>..

    Change in reply by Jeff to Generally, these trains can be booked within 90 days of an intended date of departure (with the exception of trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/prague-to-vienna.html" rel="nofollow">Prague to Vienna</a>, which can only be booked within 60 days of an intended departure). However, this is the time of year when the annual 'Winter Schedule Changes' occur with some of the rail networks and train operators in Europe. As a result of the 'Winter Schedule Changes', many trains operating after December 10th have not yet been posted in the international booking system, including the trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/zagreb-to-budapest.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/zagreb-to-budapest.html">Zagreb to Budapest</a>, trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/vienna-to-prague.html" rel="nofollow">Vienna to Prague</a>, and trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/prague-to-vienna.html" rel="nofollow">Prague to Vienna</a>.<br /><br />We expect the schedules for trains operating after December 10th to be released some time within the next few weeks. For right now, you can just use a date some time between now and December 10th in order to view the schedules and passholder reservation costs..
