ČD orders long-distance EMUs ahead of market opening
07 Aug 2014


RegioPanter regional electric multiple-unit

CZECH REPUBLIC: National passenger operator ČD announced a KC2·6bn order for 14 long-distance electric multiple-units based on Škoda Vagonka’s RegioPanter regional EMU family on August 5.

Deliveries are scheduled for 2015-16. The routes the EMUs will be deployed on are still be finalised, but ČD said the order forms part of its preparation for the opening of the long-distance passenger market and the withdrawal of older locomotive-hauled coaches.

The contract covers 10 five-car EMUs with 292 fixed and 16 tip-up seats, and four three-car EMUs with 162+13 seats. The air-conditioned 160 km/h units will be equipped to operate under both 3 kV DC and 25 kV AC electrification.

The inter-regional EMUs will have one door per coach side rather than the two of the regional units, with doors between the entrance vestibules and passenger saloons. There will be two classes of accommodation, additional bicycle and luggage spaces, seat and cycle reservation displays, wi-fi and power sockets. A family area will have internal doors operated by buttons rather than optical detectors to prevent inadvertent triggering by children’s movements.

Ivo Gurňák, Commercial Director at Škoda Vagonka, said the manufacturer also has ambitions to export EMUs from the Panter family to other customers in central and eastern Europe, including Germany

CD are thinking about operating Pendolinos also in Slovakia on the Praha - Ostrava - Košice route.

CD might have problems using the Taurus locomotives. Apparently they closed the deal on renting the Taurus from OBB without a public tender which the Office for the Protection of Competition doesn't like and threatens to cancel the contract.

http://ekonomika.idnes.cz/problemy-s...ent=clanek-box

CD also tried to get the Railjet communication protocols from SIEMENS so that they could use another locomotive (guess which one , but Siemens would not give it.

Czech government approved a schedule for tendering of some long distance relations. First one, between Plzeň and Most should be tendered this autumn already.

http://www.novinky.cz/ekonomika/3477...ych-trati.html

One of the conditions is compatibility of the ticketing system. I.e. one ticket must serve the whole traveled distance even if a passenger changes train from one to another provider.

And what about the RJ loco issue? Is the government somewhat involved in resolving this issue?

Not that I know. The government should also have no influence on the decision of the ÚOHS (Competition authority). The decision was not effective and CD made an appeal.

CD was in black numbers in the first half of the year. The passenger transport was in red numbers still though.

Pendolinos to cut journey times between Prague and Kosice
17 SEP, 2014

[IMG]http://i0.wp.com/www.globalrailnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/Czech-Pendolino-************.jpg?resize=720%2C400[/IMG]

Czech Railways (ČD) and Slovakia’s national rail carrier, ZSSK, have said journey times between Prague and Kosice will be reduced by almost an hour with the introduction of a new Pendolino service.

Currently it takes around eight hours and 20 minutes via the Eurocity Košičan from Prague to Kosice and an additional five minutes on top of that for the return journey.

By utilising the Pendolino’s tilting mechanism and higher average speed, ČD has said journey times will be cut to around seven and a half hours when the new timetable comes into operation at the end of the year
