I like these new PESA, they kind of grow on you, look a little nerdy, but in a very cool way.

You don't have to excuse yourself, I belong to the minority who likes new Pesa for Warsaw. This minority isn't small at all.

Article in English about Tarchomin tram extension:
http://www.railwaygazette.com/news/u...tarchomin.html
Quote:
Warszawa trams extended to Tarchomin
29 Dec 2014

POLAND: The next stage of Tramwaje Warszawskie’s extension to serve the capital's rapidly-expanding Tarchomin district was opened for revenue service on December 24.

The first stage of the new line was completed as far as Marii Curie Skłodowski bridge in January 2013, and the latest extension to Kościelny adds a further 4·5 km plus four more stops. The final 3 km to the eventual terminus at Winnica is expected to be opened within the next year. Civil engineering works for the latest section were undertaken by ZUE at a cost of 65m złoty.

The new line is served by route 2, which offers a journey time from Tarchomin Kościelny to the metro interchange at Młociny of around 15 min. As no turning loops have been provided during the staged construction programme, the line is operated by TW’s six bi-directional Swing trams; these will be augmented by 35 Jazz Duo cars now on order from Pesa.

Once the new trams are available, TW will be able to step up the service frequency. The long-term plan envisages route 2 running every 4 min, supplemented by an extension of route 17 every 8 min.]

One small correction to the article. The new part of the line is 2.2 km long not 4-5 km long. The Line 2 connects the Tarchomin neighbourhood with the M1 metro line northern terminus through the Vistula river. Journey according to a timetable takes 13-14 minutes.

Rute map:
https://maps.google.com/maps?t=k&q=h...sic&dg=feature

Videos of the entire line 2. Journey there and back again:

Trzeba przyznać, że tramwaj chyżo pomyka, gdyby nie ogranicznik w Pesie, to prawdopodobnie motorniczy jeździli by jeszcze szybciej. Na trasie jest chyba najdłuższy odcinek między przystankami w Warszawie (2227 m - tyle wyświetlało się na monitorze w kabinie) który tramwaj rozkładowo przejeżdża w 3 minuty. Dylatacje na moście mają ograniczenia prędkości do 45 km/h co jest przyzwoitą prędkością. Jedyne minusy trasy to światła przy Myśliborskiej i całkowicie zbędne światło na przejściu dla pieszych przy przystanku Stare Świdry. W tym miejscu wystarczyło by migające pomarańczowe światło z sygnałem dźwiękowym wzbudzane przez nadjeżdżający tramwaj. Ale takie rozwiązanie jest chyba zbyt skomplikowane dla miłościwie nam panującego Inżyniera Ruchu M.St. Warszawy, który woli proste 50 sygnalizatorów na jednym skrzyżowaniu.
Na filmie warto zwrócić uwagę (za przystankiem Tarchomin) jak pożyteczne może być słuchanie muzyki przez słuchawki i nie zawracanie sobie głowy światłami. W ten sposób można być nominowanym do nagrody Darwina.

Aby Ci którzy pojechali w wirtualną podróż na Tarchomin Kościelny nie marzli tam na przystanku, podstawiam wagon do jazdy powrotnej. Trasa linii 2 Tarchomin Kościelny - Metro Młociny. Zapraszam wsiadajcie.

That was a one big fake by a old-new mayor of Warsaw. She was convincing people that the central M2 will be opened soon after the elections. Now when she won the elections "nobody knows when it will be opened"

Safety checks come first over an unfulfilled opening date. Nobody is going to be grateful if accidents or fatalities happen on M2 because safety checks were not fully completed

That's for sure, but it all looks now, that they were aware at that time, that it will not be opened soon... And that's the case

I agree that the proposed opening dates for end of 2014 should never have been promised in the first place

All we can do is wait and see now

well there are some delay in finishing works. and the tests and obtaining operation permission tooks longer than expect.
At April 7 is the 20. anniversary of Metro - and the Metro organisation is working to open the line together with this jubilee.

Hmm, if I recall correctly, the technical and reasonable opening date should be something between february and april 2015. Basic thing is, that it´s not enough to test each component but to test the whole operation for let´s say max. 4 weeks. Since a small fire occured, luckily engineers have priority again, not politicians.
