Not recommended, but this is also an option.

Take a train to the city of Gyöngyös at Eastern railway station ("Keleti pályaudvar"). Please change the train at Vámosgyörk. This option is inferoir to transfer by bus, if you happen to transfer from Budapest, because of the existence of direct and efficient, nonstop public bus connections between Budapest and Gyöngyös.
