I don't know about that picture, but I found the place on Google Street view: https://goo.gl/maps/60pkR
Hungary is a really beautiful place.

That is a really neat-looking building. It would make a great restaurant / gift shoppe type of place.

From this angle, it seems that knappa's link is the correct one! I can't see the tracks though. Maybe long gone?

It's only spooky because it is a foggy monochrome photo. Try this:
Decrepit, but not spooky.

Agreed. Lack of foliage adds too the spookiness in the monochrome spectrum. Color and vegetation does lessen the effect.

Turn it into a sh-sh-SHOPPING mall?! Now THAT'S scary!

In color not so spooky.

That's precisely why I hope "renovate" really means "restore and preserve". In fact leaving the outside architecture as it is might draw even more people to the planned shopping mall.
I know I'd want to go there just to see that building.

charming little place. I wonder how someone can be spooked by it.

...Looks like the Addams Family's summer home.

As someone who has emigrated to Hungary and lives in Budapest — I will say it is an awesomely beautiful city and so much to explore as a resident and as a photographer. This photo is just one little nook that few tourists ever see.
Apologies for the self-promo here, but I think BBers will enjoy my photo blog which has about 95% Budapest photos: http://redjade.tumblr.com/
