Knowing PKP companies, I really don't believe that in 2012 or 2013 CMK between Warsaw and south (not mentioning north branch) will be upgraded to 200 km/h. We will wait at least a few years more...

In Czech Rep. they have already long distance multiple units.
As far as I know high speed rail counts from 200 km/h on modernised lines, and from 250 km/h on new lines.
Czech railways have 7 tilting EMUs which are able to reach 230 km/h, but there are no lines capable for such speed so their maximal speed in actual operation is only 160 km/h.

I love the trains, and the landscapes! Funny how they replaced the front of the old trainsets. I find it disturbing though how trains seem to be looking more and more the same in different countries. The exact same doubledecker coaches are also running in Germany. The old trains still have character, I love the huge lamps!

But standards of these old trains is low. They're from 60's so design is very obsolete and comfort is very bad. Seats are replaced sometimes, and some minor upgrades are done, but EN57/EN71 still do not meet today's standards. These ones with replaced front are much better, engines are replaced, all interior is just like it should be in XXI century Maybe not luxury, but much more passenger-friendly.

As a curiosity I can say, that there's about 1000 of these trains running on Polish rails.

Interior of modernised ones:






www.newag.pl

sometimes like that



Depends on what company rebuilds them.

Old interiors...



EDIT:

EP09 with Intercity train, after small modernisation and with new painting:

^ Tell me about it.. Where I live they still run rolling stock from the 50s. It's been modernised about a dozen times but it still shakes and rattles as hell. The doors can be incredibly hard to open. My friend once couldnt get out at the right station, he had to get out the next and go back, and he's still a young and strong lad! Recently they installed displays so I gave up hope that the trains will be replaced within the next ten years
