Slovakian company ZOS Vrútky will supply 12 Class 860 three-car inter-regional diesel motor units (DMUs) to national rail passenger transport operator ZSSK, under a €53m contract.


The new 140kmph model is powered by 400kW MAN engines with Voith transmission and the units will have 177 second-class seats plus space for bicycles, prams and luggage.

The Class 860 will partly be based on six Class 840 two-car GTW 2/6 DMUs delivered in 2003 by a consortium consisting of Stadler and ZOS Vrútky.


The DMUs will be delivered in 2010-15 for use on
  • Humenné - Presov - Kosice - Humenné services
  • Nové Zámky to Leopoldov and Prievidza.

seems that similar trains is delivered this year to BiH but in Slovakian case trains are over 50% home made

Some modernisation plans



Black (and bold) - already modernised
Red, orange and blue - to be modernised until 2016
Green - to be modernised until 2020

Further explanation:
Red - upgrade on 160 km/h, but it's no way possible tu upgrade also the last stretches close to the Czech and Polish borders until 2016
Orange - replacement of old security equipment with ETCS, which will probably allow speed 160 km/h on majority of this corridor
Blue - there are no information about scale of the modernisation of this line

Green - complex upgrade on 160 - 200 km/h, but again it's impossible to complete it whole until 2020

Ampeer is a coach not entire train and yes, it's already in operation on ICs on line Bratislava - Žilina - Košice. (Check e.g. here.) The coach is 200 km/h ready, but officially it's approved for 160 km/h only. But it doesn't really matter because the highest allowed speed on Slovak railways is for now only 140 km/h.

Actually, this year regular operation in speed 160 km/h will be finally introduced on first approximately 100 km line between Bratislava and Nové Mesto nad Váhom which is part of the main railway Bratislava - Košice. First locomotive class 350 was already equipped with ETCS which is necessary for regular operation in 160 km/h on the modernised lines and more will come.



BTW, there will be also lines for 200 km/h when modernisation of Bratislava - Košice line will reach central and eastern Slovakia, but we have to wait for about 10 years.

Hi, it would be nice if you could join this thread and attach pictures of examples of different solutions for helping disabled persons to board the train.

Barrier-free transport for the disabled - wheelchair lifts

This is after several decades the first new railway tunnel in Slovakia. Its length is 1775 m and it will be ready for operation in 200 km/h. It's located near Trenčín.

Tunnel Turecký vrch:

Since March 2012 approximately 100 km long railway Nr. 131 Bratislava - Dunajská Streda - Komárno will be operated by private railway operator - Czech based RegioJet. It's the first breach of the monopoly of state-owned passenger railway operator ZSSK. They will require 10% less subsidies from state while they will double number of connections (a train every 60 min. and in peak time every 30 min.) and shorten travel time. They will use probably Bombardier Talent DMUs wit A/C and Wi-Fi.



Private operators will also enter long distance services. Next years here will be private overnight train from Košice to Prague by Wagon Service Travel and probably soon also private ICs from Žilina to Prague by RegioJet.
