No offence, but looks like designed 15 years ago.

Fortunately, looks in a locomotive are of minor importance. It's what's inside that counts, and Skoda had built in the past some fine locos.

I like it. When I grow up, I will buy one.
Just joking.

But really, I believe that the performance is quite OK. Congrats.

According to this press release first CD-Railjets are expected to be delivered for trial operation in the summer of 2014:

http://www.ceskedrahy.cz/tiskove-cen...zpravy/-17629/

I suppose by that time they'll already be using some of their own 380 locos instead of ÖBB 1216's.

380 is not compatible with the Railjet so that definitely wont be that case. Well i think technically Skoda locos could pull but not push, but than the steuerwagen would be unecessary and the whole P/P concept wouldnt be fully utilized. I heard CD is leasing 9 1216`s(7+2 in reserve) coupled with thair share of Railjets. 380`s were considered for Railjets to Budapest, but now it is 99% likely they wont be bought.

380 eventually will definitely be fitted for push/pull configurations (just think of the DB-Regio order for 6 push/pull trains). Compatibility with the RJ was tested in 2009, but I've no idea what the result was:



However, according to the following page, CD will have to invest another 50-100 million CZK to make the 380 locos fit for RJ operations:

As for that: http://www.ceskedrahy.cz/tiskove-cen...zpravy/-17698/

CD and Siemens management agreed to extend the Budapest option until September 6h. To me it looks like CD wants to buy those trains, but the new management is uncertain how to finance them.

Also found this one:

Design of ČD Regio Spider looks really functional, good work. Does anyone know what is the situation with railways in Silesia? Is it well developed? Modern? Reliable?

Cheers.

Yes there are construction works on 3rd and 4th corridor including track relayings and some tunnels, also reconstruction of railway stations, e.g. Prague Holešovice, Olomouc, Přerov or Ústí nad Orlicí


Overview of all projects going on and prepared available here http://www.szdc.cz/en/modernizace-dr...ed-staveb.html

The main lines are in good or sufficient condition, the standard is the same as in the rest of the country.
