First look at PESA's GAMA diesel locomotive. 10 such locomotives were ordered by PKP Intercity. The locomotive's premiere will be at upcoming Innotrans.

In Polan, you spend as much time in short-distance trains as you spend in Spain in long distance ones

Hmm. It'll be hard to find because before 1918 Poland as a country wasn't exist. Railways were splited between Russia, Germany and Austria. And there will be gap between 1939 and 1945.

Some of history can be found for example here in pdf . You can try to translate using this link

PS. There are some addnotation at the bottom of the document.

Koleje Śląskie direct award
16 Sep 2014



POLAND: Śląskie voivodship has announced its intention to directly award its in-house train operating company Koleje Śląskie a contract to operate local passenger services between January 1 2015 and December 31 2025.

The transfer of services in Śląskie from national regional train operator PR to KS in December 2012 proved problematic, with rolling stock shortages leading to widespread cancellations, and KS still suffers from a lack of available trains.

To overcome this, KS has called tenders for the short-term lease of 28 EMUs from January 2015 to December 2017, when the purchase of new trainsets is planned.

National railway holding company PKP SA has transferred ownership of the 71 km Grójecka Kolej Dojazdowa metre-gauge tourist railway to local authorities.

Pesa loco for PKP Intercity unveiled in Berlin
Wednesday, September 24, 2014



IRJ at InnoTrans 2014: THE first of 10 four-axle Db111 Gama diesel locomotives being supplied by Pesa, Poland, to Polish long-distance passenger operator PKP Intercity was presented at InnoTrans on September 24.

The 2.4MW 140km/h locomotives were ordered early this year in a deal worth Zlotys 131.2m. The fleet will be introduced in October 2015 on Intercity services to Zamosc, Pila and international services to Šeštokai in Lithuania.

The design is derived from the Pesa Gama 111E multi-system electric locomotive, which was unveiled at InnoTrans 2012.

Gdansk again. Last two and half months of construction work before opening on new extension of existing SKM line with new Southern terminus station Gdansk-Śródmieście (Gdansk-Midtown):
(Don't mix it up with entirely new Metropolitan line which is currently under construction too - pictures above)

But they aren't. At least without additional noise prevention systems installed.

Ballastless tracks in my pictures are in existing station Gdansk Glowny not in the tunnel. There will be no overhead enclosed structures except normal canopies over the platforms. According to article from GW ballastless tracks in this place suppose to limit noise.
