Poland’s first high speed Pendolino train ran for the first time today. It operated a scheduled PKP service between Warsaw and Krakow. Other services will operate between Warsaw, Gdansk, Wrocław, Krakow and Katowice. The train is built by Alstom and in tests prior to it going into official service achieved a speed of 291 km/h (181 mph). I for one can’t wait to travel on it!
