Description

Photographed on 30 September 2015 in Warsaw Central Station. Unfortunately my trip to Wolsztyn that day via Poznan was not aboard one of these. The 7-car trainsets are not equipped for tilting, but during testing, on 23 November 2013 one reached 182 mph (293 km/h).
Introduction of the fast, modern Pendolinos in December 2014 had a major effect on rail ridership in Poland. In the first five months of 2015, Warsaw–Kraków rail ridership rose by 50%. In May 2015 alone, Warsaw–Kraków ridership was 70 percent higher than a year earlier.
