First time after the war, after 77 lat of no service, last weekend the connection between Białystok, PL and Kaunas, LT was initiated.
The stops on Polish side are in Czarna Białostocka, Sokółka, Dąbrowa Białostocka, Augustów, Suwałki and Trakiszki and on Lithuanian side in Mariampol and Kazlu Ruda.
The journey takes 5h one way.

[SK] Approval runs in Hungary with EU46-507/509/510

PKP Cargo's Vectrons have returned from Hungary after tests, they are seen being hauled an ES64F4 Eurosprinter.

Quote:
A picture from this afternoon: PKP Cargo ES 64 F4-153 hauls EU46-507, 509 and 510. The three Vectron locomotives come back from Hungary, where they did approval runs in order to get homologated for revenue service in that country. We thank Vladislav Bokora for the image from Železná Studienka ('Eisenbrunnen Bratislava').

Well technically you can call them either. Anyway, i think PKP Cargo have now returned all their leased EU43s and they might even remove the one that they own from their fleet.

[PL] PKP Intercity wants 40 new electric locomotives

PKP Intercity have put a tender out for 40 new electrics of 160km/h top speed to replace some of their older locomotives (EP07s and EP09s). Some EP07s will be refurbished.




Quote:
The new PKP IC management team, appointed in march 2016, has developed a new roadmap for the purchase of modern rolling stock. The operator wants to spend over one billion zlotys on new trains, which PKP SA has capitalized after selling of PKP Energetyka.

Firstly it is planned to buy 40 new electric locomotives with a top speed of 160 kph for PKP IC. It’s quite a revolution. During the past years, PKP IC focused only on the refurbishment of existing locomotives. The last contract for new electrics was signed in 2008. Then PKP IC ordered ten Siemens ES64U4 locomotives in multi-system configuration. These are now being used for the more prestegious trains towards Germany and the Czech Republic, among others.


The new machines can become the new core of PKP IC’s long distance locomotive fleet for domestic services. And they are needed. Loco hauled trains on inland connections are still the exclusive domain of old types of machines, which can not go on forever.

A tender should be announced later this year. Making it possible to introduce the first locomotives in 2019. Manufacturers will have enough time to realize the contract. Obviously, Newag and Pesa Bygdoszcz from Poland, which are offering products like Griffin and Gama respectivily, will be strong contestants. From abroad, Bombardier, Siemens and Skoda can compete with the Polish producers.

Fantastic new livery, definitely one of the best colour combinations in Poland so far imo.

The last Dragon for Freightliner PL



Quote:
This is Dragon locomotive no.5 for Freightliner PL from Poland. It had a test run today and is soon to be handed over to the operator. It is the very last locomotive built by Newag at its Gliwice plant. The company has decided to concentrate all its rolling stock construction activities at its other factory location in Nowy Sącz. The Gliwice factory came into possession of Newag when it (fully) took over ZNLE in 2015.

The history of the factory in Gliwice goes back to 1904. A history full of steam locomotives and locomotive modernization. In total, 15 new electrics have been built since 2006 at Gliwice. Dragon locomotive E6ACT-001 to 009. E6ACtd-101 to 105 and the Griffin prototype: E4MSU-001.

Great looking locomotives, in my opinion!

In Poland many trains in the current days, both long-distance and local ones, are cancelled to provide rolling stock for the transport for the World Youth Days. And here comes the question to those from the countries which were organizing this event in the previous years. Did this happen also in your countries?
