I am not sure if he gave up, but I guess the barrier would be for him around the same as the barrier ČD has in Germany so it will stay with vague plans. AFAIK PKP PLP rejected him on the tracks.

He had operational profit last year, but the investments are sitting on him too heavy, so the company made a total loss of some 5-6 mln Euro on the Praha - Ostrava relation.

Two weeks ago they gave up for now. Found the article.

The owner claims Poland blocked Leo Express in favour of the Pendolino.

I thought you meant that Flirt is not a Pendolino .

It doesn't have tilting, but it is marketed as Pendolino..


Anywya, does anyone know whether the Czech and Polish pendolinos would be compatible to operate the Praha - Ostrava - Katowice - Warszawa relation? (the tilting saves perhaps 15 minutes on the Praha - Ostrava route, so it would not be hindering the relation).

The Netherlands had enormous problems with their Italian Fyra's too. This proves again where you shouldn't buy trains.

Throwing away 0,5mld euro (public money) without any consequences... That's just madness.

And if new railway stations aren't built or older renovated you will for sure complain that they are bad.

are you kidding me, why is this madness? Very impressive and needed development that will spur the revitalization of historic Lodz core and generate billions in spinoffs long term.

Is the new tunnel line across Lodz (from the new Fabrycza station to Kaliska station) also under construction now?
This would be a real advantage for rail services, whereas just a new Fabrycza station without a new cross-city line would of course be nice for city development, but not enable any new, faster train services (compared to the old situation).

Polish Railways reveals 6-year investment plan

Polish Railways aims to invest 50 billion zloty (12 billion euro) over the next six years on modernising rail lines and platforms.

About 40 billion zloty (9.6 billion euro) will come from EU funds, according to chairman of PKP Remigiusz Paszkiewicz, who has said that a chief priority will be improving the infrastructure for freight trains.

“We want to decisively speed up such trains,” Paszkiewicz affirmed.

At present, freight trains in Poland rarely exceed 30 km per hour, whereas in most EU countries similar services typically travel at over 50 km per hour.

Paszkiewicz said that owing to the new investments, freight trains will be able to travel as fast as 120 km per hour in some places.

“Over the last 10 years we have managed to modernise over 5000 km of tracks, of which more than half was done in 2012-2013,” he said.

One of the biggest projects at hand is the modernisation of the freight line between Lower Silesia and Szczecin on the Baltic coast.

Other costly investments will take place in Warsaw, where the Dworzec Zachodnia (Western Station) is being rebuilt and the tracks upgraded. Three other stations in the capital, Dworzec Centralny, Dworzec Wchodni and Dworzec Gdanski (Central, Eastern and Gdansk) will also be upgraded. (nh)

Pesa wins Gdańsk airport DMU order
25 Jun 2014


The Pomorska Kolej Metropolitalna project will use a mix of reopenings and new construction will provide a route running inland of the existing Gdansk - Gdynia line

POLAND: Pomorskie voivodship has selected Pesa to supply 10 diesel multiple-units for 114m złoty.

The seven three-car and three two-car DMUs are to be delivered by May 2015.

They will be used on the Pomorska Kolej Metropolitalna line which is under construction to link Gdańsk to the city’s airport and Gdynia, where it will join the existing route to Kartuzy and Kościerzyna.

The 120 km/h DMUs are required to have an entrance height of 760 mm rather than Poland’s more usual 550 mm, and will be equipped with sliding steps for use at lower platforms.
