Hors d'oeuvres

This part of our website has been prepared to extend our Railvolution news service. Its objective is to offer you snippets of the latest, most interesting news, accompanied by photos. On one hand this will let you to have a sneak preview of what the forthcoming number of Railvolution will contain. On the other, it will enable our editorial staff to provide you with information that is at their fingertips – and why waste exciting pieces of news while waiting until we have the printed version of the magazine ready for distribution? What is more, on the website pages we are in a position to publish photos for which there will be insufficient space in the printed magazine!

Please bear in mind that it is not our intention to 'digitalise' Railvolution! The printed magazine will still continue, with its full range of articles and news items. But we hope that you enjoy this new offering, and that it will stimulate your interest in our unique publication.

  • GAMA Marathon Passenger Debut

Having completed its test running with LOTOS Kolej freights in a satisfactory manner, 111Ed-001 is now spending a test period hauling PKP Intercity expresses. It made its debut on 28 February at the head of „Kopernik” train from Bydgoszcz to Warszawa (hauling it together with an EU07 electric), followed on 1 March 2013, departing from Warszawa Wschodnia at the head of TLK 53106 „Norwid” bound for Kraków Główny. The photographs show the locomotive, now wearing PKP IC livery, at Warszawa Wschodnia and leaving the cross-city tunnel near Warszawa-Ochota, with this train. The test runs will also take the GAMA electric to Poznań, Gdynia and Wrocław on TLK and EIC expresses at speeds up to 160 km/h.
