Max speed after modernisation on that line will be up to 250 km/h (and there are plans for 300km/h). Pendolino should reach 220/230km/h.


Speed record on that line (and whole Mid-Eastern Europe) was established in 1994- 250,1 km/h- with Pendolino train BTW
Well, in terms of design, October Railway Mainline from Moscow to St. Peterborough had 200-220 curves back in 19th century (it was Called Nikolai Railway in that time, of course)

Nice! I really like this painting. Polish Intercity trains should be white and red. :)

Ok, thanx for your answer. In my opinion high speed rail is 250km/h or more, but 220/230 is not bad ofcourse

E4MSU „Griffin” from ZNLE Gliwice Poland

[IMG]http://oi42.************/2w4k7ds.jpg[/IMG]


A few official updates. The first prototype will be E4MSU, multi-system (3 kV DC, 15 kV AC 16 2/3 Hz and 25 kV AC 50 Hz), universal/freight loco suitable for various safety systems (for example ETCS, SHP (Poland), PZB (Germany) or LS90 (Czech Republic)). A few E4MSU details:
UIC classification - Bo'Bo'
Locomotive weight - 88t
Axle load - 22t
Power output - 5,6MW
Tractive effort - 330kN
Maximum train weight (passenger) - 800t
Maximum train weight (freight) - 3200t

Top speed of passenger versions: E4ACP (3kV DC) and E4MSP will have top speed of 190km/h but rumors say that ZNLE can do better - up to 200km/h. Official pics:

I thought that train services between Frederic Chopin airport, Warsaw ciy centre, Legionowo and Sulejówek weren't starting until 1st June 2012? A train at the station already am I seeing things?

High speed rail project (called Y) is on hold atm, unfortunately. New Pendolino trains will be in serv. in 2014. (Polish railways have bought 20 new pendos, as far as i can remember)
