Looks great from the inside, but too much like Disney Land outside.

actually, Disneyland looks too much like the outside of this train station (or Neuschwanstein, but you probably knew that ).

Though I'd expect a lot of people in Poland to have the same knee-jerk reaction. There's an, um, urban renewal tendency, where old communistic buildings get painted in either pink or a shade of orange that should only be legal in Netherlands.

Exactly! Wrocław Główny railway station got the same color which were used originally... That was the fashion when it was built.

I see there is a clear reminder for the operator of that train: speed limit - 160 km/h

They seem to continue "insect design", both Dragon and now Griffin remind me of some insects heads, don't you think?

The Griffin looks amazing! Was it designed for cargo transportation? I mean Vmax 140 km/h is definitely too little for commercial passenger service nowadays.

It's a modular platform for freight or passenger trains with Vmax between 140 and 190km/h (rumors say that ZNLE can make it with Vmax 200km/h). Probably they chose freight version for a prototype because it's easier to sell one for private operators.

That makes sense.
