Seeing these video's really forces me to make this remark: Yes, Dutch Railways (NS), you too could have had a perfectly functioning high speed train within months of delivery if you wouldn't have screwed up the tender and would have selected a proper manufacturer.

Szuper news and great work of development! But!
High speed is one thing and safety is another!
I realy hope that the modernized rail infrastructure and safety systems on those lines, are up to the task!
Well done Poland!
