I don't know what bigger railway contracts is Skoda working on recently. All I see is some new trains for home markets: Czech Rep and Slovakia... and some for Ukraine... Kind of small deal comparing to contracts won by PESA.

I wonder why Pesa hadn't offered its Elfs in the second tender... Anyway, nice to see ABS's defeat done by well-developing company from eastern block

Congrats to Skoda, however it is still very small comparing to giant order from PESA made by DB.
...also good luck with difficult German market where homologation can take ages...

Not really very small compared to the Pesa contract for the total of 470 units which is worth some € 1.3 bln, while those two Škoda contracts are worth € 0.5 bln.

The paperwork will be interesting, anyway the Škoda 109e is the second locomotive that had acquired TSI HS though.

Skoda has well esablished brand in first place. While PESA, NEWAG or Solaris are still newbies.

Anyway it would be interesting, since Skoda is cooperating with PESA and Solaris-mybe they will try to create something bigger.

Why joking?
Skoda is over 100 year old company vs. PESA and NEWAG which as a brand comes from mid-90's and Solaris from 2001.
Total newbies.

Actually Pesa was created as Reparaturbetrieb der östlichen Eisenbahn in 19th century, so excluding re-branding matters it shouldn't be treated as newbie. Newag is just 25 years younger, of course also not as Newag at all.

Soon renovation of the Gliwice railway station will start, which should mostly finish by the end of the year. 156 mln zloty will be invested (roughly 39 mln zloty).

Now:

Quite important that those units were produced originally for German operator Oberpfalzbahn, but due to some problems with homologating process they weren't delivered and Pesa leased them to Koleje Wielkopolskie, after changing the paint and upholstery. Wooden surface is some reminder from their German episode.

You mean red seats?
It looks OK for me. Good contrast for brown and white interior.
