45 Years Old Unit EN57 gets Modernised and Refurbished
The Unit EN57 can be found in every major Town in Poland operating Suburban Services
The EN57 units operating in Warsaw by the Region Operator responsible for Suburban Services "Koleje Mazowieckie" KM has refurbished the Trains internally and changed the seating, the exterior of the Train had received anti-vandal paint (as a lot of these units get badly scribbled by idiots using their crayons they probably got for their birthday), the windows has anti-etching foil and the front of the train has a LED Destination Screen

It is not known whether the Tricity trains that operate in the Gdansk/Danzig area operated by En57 will be refurbished
While the rest operated by PKP (polish state railways) Regional will be modernised (cost £135million)

Special Pope Train

This train has been blessed by the Pope on 31st May 2006
Pope Benedict 16th received a model of the Special Pope Train during his visit
This Special Train runs between the City of Kraków (Cracow) to Wadowice (the birthplace of JP II)
This Train runs 3 Times a Day
Here are some Images of the Pope Train


As you can see, this train is based on the 14WE series

I'm impressed by quite how radical the modernisation of the EN57s is. They look like new trains; it is surprising to me that this option was chosen instead of replacing the fleet.
