I'm guessing thats achieved on the Warsaw-Berlin line, correct?

All in all, great thread

I was personally really impressed with Polish railways back in 2007 during my week long stay in Poland and the cities of Warsaw, Krakow & TriCity. I might post some railway-related photos later.

These mawkish pictures posted by @krzysiu are only exception to the rule which is very sad and looks more or less like this:

Ofc you're right but not entirely...Poland is one of the biggest coutries is EU, you have take it into consideration...So you need alot of time and money to 'upgrade' it to some standards...And ofc some small cites/villages, just like Tychy are the last on the list 'to upgrade'.

Yes, but clean train is not its upgrade. It is simple activity. So why most trains and stations are dirty?

Some photos of Poznań rail infrastructure after latest general modernisation. Unfortunately modernisation of Poznań rail infrastructure was not concern building of rail stations. But probably before 2012 or 2013 there will be new main station which will integrate with means of transport, especially means of public transport.

I used photos made by forumers from Poznań.

reminds me of Germany.

What about HSR projects or any project wich has speed upper than 200 km/h? Is there any project for this, or modernization (as I see it goes very well) of current railway infasutructure?

Project of speed rail will connect Wrocław, Poznań, Łódź, Kalisz and Warsaw and that is why we call it "Y", because when you look on Polish map future speed railway looks like "Y". I read on Wikipedia its speed will has 360 km/h and copmlete first part of investiton is planned in 2018 or 2020.

Tychy has 128 000 inhabitants, other cities from the photos- Bydgoszcz -
362 000 inh; Gdynia -250 000inh. - so they aren't small cities.

But to be not suspected of pessimism here is the photo of railway station from my city - Lublin (find in internet)

The latest news (yesterday) is this (in Polish):
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...4#post30965664
Short translation:
The tender for construction is just about to be announced, but currently the railways are waiting for a confirmation from the government, that the money will be available.

Current promises are that the construction will start in june this year and end in the mid-2011.

Hello, I would like to ask about Poland-Ukrainian border crossings by railway. I know three of them: Izov, Chrubešev and Mostička (spelling is probably incorrect).

Could someone tell me if there are more of crossing points and the correct names of these?

And what technologies are used in these three and other points. I mean, is the material transfered from one train(with russian gauge) to another(with european gauge) or is the bogie of the train changed?

Also, I heard there's a line of russian gauge going deeper into Poland (Krakow maybe?). Is that true?

I would really apprieciate your help
