Are the double-deckers meant for regional/inter-regional services?

Any nice maps showing the upgrades of lines and stations which were made in the last years leading to the Euro?

It would be excellent a map showing the maximum speed in each line =)

UEFA joins the 'party:-

Journey times in Ukraine have been slashed by a quarter after the completion of extensive rail improvements.

'High-speed trains' capable of reaching 160km/h are now in operation between all four of the country's UEFA EURO 2012 venues – Kyiv, Kharkiv, Donetsk and Lviv – as well as Dnipropetrovsk and Odesa. The journey between Kyiv and Lviv, for example, has been cut from six and a half hours to under five, while the once six-hour slog from Kyiv to Kharkiv is down to four and a half. There will be at least one 'speed' train per day, two from Kyiv to Kharkiv.

Ukrainian UEFA EURO 2012 tournament director Markiyan Lubkivskiy said: "Ukraine has undergone significant changes in preparation for the European Championship. There are four new stadiums, four renovated airports, and the road infrastructure has improved within and between the host cities. The rail network has been reconstructed and the new fast trains will provide the best service for our citizens and visitors".

Martin Kallen, UEFA's operations director, added: "It's our biggest tournament yet in terms of territory and the distance between host cities is huge – transport will play a crucial role in the event's success. These fast trains will link EURO 2012 host cities and offer fans a quick, comfortable trip from one city to another at a reasonable price".

Buying tickets
A new automated ticket system was launched on 21 May, offering users the opportunity to book and purchase tickets online.

Very good photos! I hope that the Hyundai and Skoda new trains will face the -35 Degrees temperatures in the winter!

One of the last remaining VL60. They are nearly phased out at the moment.

Well it may be the sexiest, but only if they fix the sides, so they will look plain, not like a field after carpet bombing
But the front is really sexy, slightly resembling Pendolino before it's last redesign.

It seems to me that a plastic membrane is covering the sides, giving the impression of an uneven surface.
