Milestone in Rail Baltica project. First normal gauge train arrived from Bialystok(PL) to Kaunas (LT). For the first time since 1939 (sic!).



More information here.

Innovative Systematic Station (or a similar translation ) in action in Nasielsk. 3 more of such standard stations will be opened this year, with tens more coming.

Such a standard station is more passenger-friendly, ecologic and cheaper to maintain. It is equipped with solar panels and LED lighting. Also equipment to store rain water is included. Everything reduces upkeep-costs by 40%.

The station is friendly for people with a handicap and blind people, with signs in braille and lines in the ground to help them navigate. There are toilets for the passengers, including a toilet for handicapped people and one for mothers with children.

There are normal ticket booths and machines. Passengers enjoy free Wi-Fi and a kiosk to buy magazines or food.

Around the station there is a parking, a bike parking and benches for people to relax. There is also a banking machine and a machine for post packages, which is extremely popular in Poland.

Such a station costs 5.4 mln zloty, or about 1.3 million euro.

It looks great, thanks for posting!

However, when looking at these pictures I start wondering why they have built it as an non-electrified line. A metropolitan railway usually has a pretty high frequency which would justify electrification. Does anyone know this? Maybe it has been mentioned in this thread before, but I'm not a daily reader of this forum so in that case I've probably missed it

As far as I know, electrification was not possible with the available budget envelope, so
yes it is foreseen, but at a later stage. I think they missed the opportinuty to build
at least the foundations for the masts, electrification works would have been much less
disrupting if that was done already, and the price for it will be much higher than if it had
been done from the start.

On the other hand, we should now adopt a much less dogmatic approach regarding
electrification. 10 or 15 years ago it was not discutable because there was really no
alternative, but today, the DMU concept has progressed so much that higher passenger
loads have now become viable with DMUs. Same with conventional passenger trains
hauled/pushed by modern diesel locomotives, look for example at what Israel is doing.

The Pomeranian Metropolitan Railway is a great project, but has its weaknesses too. The most important one: all trains end in Gdansk Wrzeszcz station, 4 kilometres from Gdansk main station (the proper centre of Gdansk with its fabulous old city etc.). That in my view could possibly handicap the project. Changing trains would be generally acceptable, but the stops of the new railway are pretty far from the population midpoints. Thus, changing from bus to train and to next train thereafter seems a bit complicated and could discourage some passengers.

Btw., are there any passenger turnout data available so far?

The new Station in Lodz will be a great improvement.

But I rearly hear anything about the extension tunnel to the west. Will it it be opened in time with the new Station or is it still just a draft?

Honestly, it isn't that bad looking, almost quite nice I may add. Hopefully the top AC? or whatever they are, will be covered up. Also parts of a Dart in the background to the left.

No, but actually it is not just a draft, because EU just have decided funding it. Works will begin in 2018 and end in 2023. There will be two regional stops in the tunnel: the first near the Zachodnia St and Kościuszki Av crossing and the second backstage to the Manufaktura shopping center
