Using which equipment. AFAIK all PKP has is 10 ES64U4 capable of going 230 km/h, but apart from that? Coaches designed to go this fast?

Like I said. You got 10 of them. Not really enough for a decent HSR service.

The current existing rolling stock can reach 160km/h and IMHO this speed is more the enough. The distances are not so great and earnings in Poland are much lower then in western europe, so people don't have the money to pay the increased costs that high speed brings.

For me therefore this entire discussion of High Speed is out of the target. People want cheap medium speed (160km/h) rather then very fast and very expensive. I think that the real question here should be when will all the works be finished in the major lines, and why the trains don't use the full capacity yet?

For example Wroclaw-Katowice should be doable in 2h30 right now, but trains take 3h despite Wroclaw-Opole being already modernized. Trains there go half of the way 100km/h and half 150km/h, while it should go 150km/h all the time.

I wonder if the new rules which impose fines or ticket returns for late trains are the responsibles for so much extra time being put in the time table or if this is a result of the chaos in the time tables which spreads from so many sections being in modernization at the same time.

Thanx for the link and the pics. We are waiting a long time for the beginning of Trigranit investement in Ljubljana. Did everything go according to the plan in Poznan?

I think we didn't have any mayor problems in Poznan maybe except that terrible accident which left one person dead at the construction site (in December).
