Modern metro lines today carry a lot more people than old wooden carts in tunnels did in 1863.

But essentially I do agree with you. Warsaw would benefit from more lines. They're a worthy investment, especially if you develop property along the lines.

When will we see some of the new Inspiro trains operating on line 1? Is there a firm date when they will be put into service? Yes the driver's view is miniscule compared to other metro trains currently being used on Warsaw's metro

They are now during final tests on 1st line (at night, without passangers) and the drivers are learning them. They were said to start normal operating in September, but there were some delays and most possible date is October/November.

Subway is polluting environment too, when electricity is obtained from the coal.

Everything pollutes environment, but modern coal plants+subway produce less pollution then buses per pass*km.

It's only a matter of time before the EU bans the burning of coal completely. It won't happen this decade, but it will happen eventually.

We'll see. It's not the biggest problem of the EU at the moment.

EU Can not ban anything.

Countries forming EU based on institutions drawn up in the treaties can potentially ban burning of coal.

In order to ban anything either a qualified majority or unanimity between the member countries have to be established supporting such ban.

WARSAW, Poland (AP) — A state-of-the-art Warsaw subway train has caught fire, forcing the evacuation of some 200 people and sending eight to the hospital.

Firefighter spokesman Capt. Karol Kierzkowski said smoke and fire appeared Sunday under the body of the Inspiro train as it was pulling into the Politechnika station on Warsaw's sole subway line. Metro employees put out the fire.

Made by Germany-based Siemens, the Inspiro is considered to be among Europe's most modern subway trains. It was introduced in Warsaw with much fanfare last month.

Subway spokesman, Krzysztof Malawko, said some 200 people were evacuated. Another eight were taken to the hospital after complaining of feeling sick from smoke.

All five of Warsaw's Inspiro trains were put out of service until the cause of the malfunction is found.
