Only those ex-Slovenian units, now running in Poland, like this one:

IIRC the Gomulka trains ran in the Rijeka area, whereas Ganz train-series from Hungary (named Madjar) operated in Zagreb-area of fomrer yugoslawian times. The nickname was chosen to differ between them.

After the third phase of Line 2 will be completed from Bródno ↔ Górce by about 2022, I hope that Line 3 from Dworzec Zachodni ↔ Stadion Narodowy will be built next, before further extensions to lines 1 or 2.

Not really, just that in ex-Yugoslavia trains often got the names of the current leaders of countries they were made in. For example we have locomotive Kennedy, a EMU Gorbachov and this Gomulka.

Today it's exactly one year since the inauguration of the first 7 stations of M2. So far almost 35 million passengers have used it and the daily ridership on weekdays exceeds 110 thousand people (many more than previously expected).


Station Nowy Świat-Uniwersytet which people in Warsaw - according to a plebiscite - like most among the new stations of M2.


Dworzec Wileński - the most frequently used station of M2.

Contract for the construction of the north-eastern extension of M2 will be signed tomorrow !

It's now official: contract for the construction of the north-eastern extension of M2 will be signed tomorrow ! The 3,12-km of tunnels and 3 new stations ("Szwedzka", "Targówek" and "Trocka") will be built by Astaldi S.p.A., one of the companies that constructed the central part of M2. The value of the contract: 1.066.740.000 zlotys (today it's 246.530.000 euros). All new stations will be built using the cut-and-cover method and tunnels using boring machines. The contractor will have 38 months to complete the construction works so the new extension should by operational by mid-2019.

And I hope they change those plans, as we already have a line from Zachodni to Stadion, and there's no need to make second one.

Warsaw's second biggest and rapidly expanding Modlin airport requires a metro line 2 link from Bródno. Presently it is not linked by any rail or metro.

Further reason for such a link is the Twierdza Modlin development - a new town planned for almost 40,000 residents, located close to the airport but quite far away from the nearest rail station.

I don't think this was posted yet. Since the Warsaw metro line is being expanded there have to be new trains as well. The deciding factor on the amount is if Warsaw will be able to sell its 22 old Russian metro trains. If it does, the tender could potentially include a number of 60 trains.

For the two expansions of the Second Line Warsaw will need minimally 20 new trains.

To thrive it needs to be connected by metro or rail (thrive means prosper). Get it?

There is a place near to the airport (Twierdza Modlin) which also needs a rail or metro connection because many people will live there.

Understand now or still a bit confused?

Modlin is not in Warsaw, but 20km away from it. They is railway station in Nowy dwór Mazowiecki, where the airport is located, and there are plans to build a railway link to the airport as well. But not metro of course.

Niezbyt przemyślane zostały także pozostałe miejsca siedzące. Na części z nich położono poduszki, które są na tyle grube, że oparcie kończy się zaraz za lędźwiami. Projektant o ergonomii chyba nigdy nie słyszał. Szkoda.


Widok antresoli… z antresoli. Wschodniej. Za sprawą wyświetlaczy nad kasami i niebieskiej poświaty konstrukcja nabiera zupełnie nowego koloru. Całość budzi skojarzenia z wnętrzem centrum handlowego Poznań Główny Szit Sęter.


Podobnie ma się sprawa z miejscami przy słupach. Sytuacja być może ulegnie poprawie, gdy ogrzewanie hali zacznie być w pełni wykorzystywane, a ciepłe powietrze będzie spychanie destryfikatorami w dół spod stropu.
