PKP Pendolino completes first million kilometres in service
BY NEWSIN RAIL NEWS · ROLLING STOCK AND COMPONENTS — 3 MAR, 2015


Poland’s InterCity Express Premium Pendolino has completed one million kilometres in passenger operation.

Since the launch of the service in December, the new fleet has completed around 2,000 journeys between the cities of Warsaw, Gdansk, Gdynia, Krakow, Katowice and Wroclaw.

The Pendolinos are Poland’s first high-speed trains. During dynamic testing, the train broke both the Polish and Pendolino speed record, reaching a top speed of 293 km\h.

Alstom maintains the IC Pendolinos at its Olszynka Grochowska depot in Warsaw.

Valerie Chardon, managing director Alstom Transport for Central and Eastern Europe, said: “Alstom is glad that PKP’s IC Pendolino fleet has successfully reached 1 million km in just two months without any major problems. This confirms Alstom’s expertise in the high-speed train sector as well as its maintenance capabilities.”

"We have the record for central and eastern Europe in terms of maximum speed"

Germany is also part of Central Europe.

CEE seem to be mostly used in relation to the V4 countries, sometimes also Romania, Slovenia or Lithuania. The term is quite useful even if it's not completely accurate for geographical or historical reasons.
East Germany is usually not counted because it was absorbed.
