That is nice but this info fits better other thread: Polish railways. High speed rail is a different project in Poland.

ED250 on CMK line is a high speed railway indeed. So imo discussions on this matter can continue in this thread!

Commercial service is scheduled for December 2014. No orders were cancelled, all 20 will be delivered by December. Trains will travel between Gdynia/Gdańsk-Warsaw-Kraków-Rzeszów, Warsaw-Wrocław, Warsaw-Łódź-Katowice.

There's no railway between Warsaw and Poznań that allowes speeds over 160 kph, hence no point in using ED250 trains

That I dont know.
It is unclear when the Y project will start, which might determine upgrade of current Warsaw - Poznan line with speeds over 160kph.

True, but there's no fast tracks between Wroclaw - Lodz - Warsaw,
so no point in using faster trains on that service.

I love the Pendolino...my second favorite type of High Speed train after the Siemens Velaro.

I notice there is no fence around the tracks, why is that? I hope some large animal doesn't run across the tracks.

Certain sections are fenced already.

CMK line is still getting upgraded for commencing the service in december.



The fence will be built in required sections.
