It's a tailor made, but concept of vehicles is based on Abeh 2/6 units for Transports Montreux–Vevey–Riviera.

Some latest news:

ZSSK has published Q1 2019 results

- Total 7.2% growth of passengers compared to Q1 2018 (18.510 vs 17.262 million).
- +4.6% of train kilometers
- +6.8% passengers carried by InterCity trains, revenue from them higher 10.5%
- Share of tickets purchased online is growing too - now it's about 30%

Livery of Stadler trains for High Tatras has been revealed


https://www.slovakrail.sk/fileadmin/...rovatkovej.jpg

Also, cog railway from Tatranská Štrba to Štrbské Pleso will be fully reconstructed until delivery of new units.

New EMUs and DMUs are coming:

First Škoda Panter on test ride (ordered are, however, 3- and 4- car units):

And also another new Slovak-made DMU. These are famous for their terrible quality:

Source: https://www.railtrains.sk/modules/xc....php?pid=34728

New services from June

From updated timetable, some new connections will be launched:

- Bratislava will get another trains with Prague - railjets of ČD will offer additional early-morning and late-evening connections.

- New fast trains (i.e. 813/913 DMUs of ZSSK) will run two times a day from Košice to Mukachevo (Ukraine), with travel time of about 3,5 h. Also Regiojet wants to launch trains on this route.

- Traffic on another regional line will be revived: from Bánovce nad Ondavou to Veľké Kapušany, trains will ride 4 times a (work)day

- Also on line to Muráň, where trains don't ride since 2011, new tourist services will be launched (operating each Saturday during summer)

- LeoExpress announced new connection: from Prague to Bratislava via Olomouc and from Bratislava to Ostrava via Žilina. However, it's just a plan (quite unrealistic) and there's no chance for start before 2020

Revitalization of Bratislava stations


Obviously, it's needed to host The Hockey Championship to refresh some of (horrible) stations in the capital. Only small, partial changes have been done, but now, Main and Vinohrady station look at least a bit better.

ŽSR has signed contract on feasibility study concerning increasing capacity and travel speed on overcrowded suburban railway Bratislava - Dunajská Streda - Komárno. Currently outside Bratislava it is single track non-electrified railway, the study will asses adding second track on some sections, electrification and possible route adjustments to connect town Šamorín. Connecting track allowing direct trains between Bratislava and Hungarian town of Komárom will also be considered.

State of the railway today in municipality of Kvetoslavov:
