Ferry across Lake Balaton
If you want to visit Siófok and are staying on the north of the lake a short-cut is to use the ferry from Tihany, we used this method and then drove back the scenic way giving us the best of both worlds.
The ferry crossing is located 8 miles south of Siófok

Rail trip from Budapest
Trains to Siofok depart from Déli Station in Budapest. The trip lasts around 2 hours.
Be careful because there´re more than 1 train station in Siofok. After the main station, close to the city center, there´s the Balatonszeplacfelsö Station (I´m sorry if I misspelled the name, but I´m sure you´ll forgive me...!!!), on the Silver Coast.

Ferry from the North side of the lake
We took the ferry across Lake Balaton on a grey and stormy day. There was some concern that the boat would not make the crossing. The ride was not that bad, and neither is it very long, as the lake is narrow, but wide. This is another picture of the memorial.
