There are some speculations. Real list we will know after September 26th.
Journalists bets: PESA, Solaris (according to tender conditions they would have to find some experienced partner), Alstom, Bombardier, Siemens and Stadler.

Russian trains look so amazing!

Who would have thought that just sticking a new front end onto the Russian trains on the Warsaw Metro could make them look so modern? Are all of the Russian trains going to have these new front ends put on them - or just a select few? The inside of them look so clean and fresh - much more pleasant than London's aging tube trains! The side mirror on the front end is a cute touch too - a good safety thought so that the driver can see who gets off and on at stops!
Btw only 2 days until Stare Bielany and Wawrzyszew stations open!
New trains and new stations - keep going Warsaw you're doing well and becoming an even more progressive modern Eastern European capital well on a par with Prague and Tallinn!

The old Russian trains have mirrors, just not as large. And these new units are completely new, not refurbishments. The metro management has bought them to avoid having to run three different types of train on the same line.

The above ground photos shown with tracks, is that the first above ground metro station in the Warsaw system, or is it a new tramway?

That's a tram part of a new transfer hub for metro, trams and buses on the north end of the first metro line.

Tram lines shown in photos to form tram link from Mlociny to north-eastern Warsaw

I would like to point out that the tram lines shown above ground at the Mlociny metro station form the soon to be extended tram link from Młociny to Białołęka on the opposite side of the Vistula river via a newly built bridge (any one got any pics of the newly built bridge or photos of its construction?)
Also what will happen to the old Russian trains which currently run on the Warsaw Metro - will they be melted down for recycling or sent to another country for use on their metro system? So to summarise we'll only have the new model Russian trains and the Almstom trains on Line 1 when it's completely finished at the end of this year?

No trains are planned to be withdrawn. All Russian trains were renovated lately.

Some really nice info for Warsaw...Last friday Tramwaje Warszawskie (Warsaw Trams) invited bids to buy 186 new low-floor trams for Warsaw. That is one of the biggest tender in the last 10 years in Europe...More info in polish:


Warszawa kupi 186 tramwajów
śmik
2008-08-22, ostatnia aktualizacja 2008-08-22 21:43

Tramwaje Warszawskie ogłosiły w piątek przetarg na zakup 186 niskopodłogowych wagonów.
To będzie jedno z największych zamówień tramwajowych w Europie w ostatnich latach. Jego wartość grubo przekroczy miliard złotych. Do 26 września firmy moją zgłaszać wnioski o dopuszczenie udziału w postępowaniu. Do kolejnego etapu zostaną zaproszeni producenci, którzy spełnią postawione wymagania (np. doświadczenie w produkcji niskopodłogowych tramwajów). Tramwaje będą miały ok. 30 m długości, monitoring, klimatyzację i automaty biletowe. Będą dostarczane w latach 2010-13. Nowa dostawa pozwoli wycofać z ruchu blisko 300 rozsypujących się wagonów z lat 60. i 70. Niskopodłogowce mają jeździć nie tylko po głównych trasach w Śródmieściu, ale także na planowanej linii po moście Północnym na Tarchomin.

I think that Warsaw has the best and most modern metro system in Eastern Europe - it's much better than other the Eastern European capital city metro systems ie those of Prague and Budapest. Warsaw's metro is clean, safe and minimalist. I'm sure that Mlociny will prove this even further when it opens in November together with Stare Bielany and Wawrzyszew (apparently both due to open this month but I don't think so!)

Warsaw doesn't have any metro system, it has only one line... It's nothing for over 2 million urban area...

Warsaw's metro may only have one line but it is a great achievement for the city considering that it had to be entirely rebuilt after WW2. Also it's entirely underground so it can be called a metro. Poland has come a long way in transport links since the downfall of Communism - we have to respect that. At least Warsaw's metro is used by it's citizens, although I do agree that it is of no use to tourists as Line 1 bypasses most of the major tourist sites - Palace of Culture of Science, Old Town, Wilanow Palace etc

It's great that Stare Bielany, Wawrzyszew and Mlociny stations are formally
opening this Saturday (25th) - at last Warsaw can fully concentrate on the Line 2 of the metro and completing the tram link from Mlociny to Targówek districts on the opposite bank of the Wisla river.
Has anyone got any pics of the bridge over the Wisla river carry the new tram line to Targówek? It's vital that these suburbs have this tram link to Mlociny until the metro reaches Targówek. Warsaw is moving forward at last. Line 1 of it's metro may have been a long time in coming but
the stations have been finished and will be delivered well before the
promised deadline of November

You mean Tarchomin?
For the new bridge we will wait a while, at least till 2012. For the metro line to Tarchomin we will wait next few decades...

Yes, Petr re tram link from Mlociny I was refering to Tarchomin not Bialoleka
I know that we'll have to wait a long time for Line 2 to be even in the construction stages

Tarchomin is part of Bialoleka District.
Second metro line is not planned to reach Tarchomin at the moment. It will end in Brodno. Metro in Tarchomin is only a speculation.
