If you want to travel to Keszthely, you should check which trains go there on at ; usually a train to Nagykanizsa that splits at Balatonszentgyörgy. The train divides into two, the front carriages go to Nagykanizsa (or vice versa) and the carriages that were originally at the back of the train go to Keszthely (or vice versa).

You should check with the guard which part goes to Keszthely to ensure that you have time to get into the correct part of the train before you get to Balatonszentgyörgy.
