please just focus on the topic
What an excellent idea.
Does anybody know why PKP decided to take a step back by cramming four seats across the Pendolino trains? Already there are complaints about that. For example:
I am impressed, but not excessively so. The 2nd class seats are comfortable, though a tad narrow for the classical Polish male derrière.
I cannot find an Internet signal, but there is a double power socket in the space between the seats. I have to have it pointed out to me as my left thigh is obscuring the location. It seems that the same approach has been made as regards the inter-seat spacing as on the notorious PESA Bydgostia EMU's - a narrow body shell has been fitted out with 2 + 2 seating and a gangway wide enough to run a wheelchair from one end of the train to another. I have difficulty in believing that such a wide gangway, and the consequent narrow seats and ultra close inter-seat positioning that results, is really required to comply with EU directives.
The interior - very nice, but the passengers do not quite fit the seats (or is it the other way round?)
In fairness I should point out that the reviewer does end by saying:
However, I am cautiously impressed, and with plenty cheap discount tickets available for advance purchase, I will certainly be using PKP's Express InterCity Premium service again.
He even points out that the train got to Krakow Glowny in 2 hours 21 minutes, i.e. seven minutes early.
So when will Pendolino trains be running to where I like to go, the so-called 'Polska B'?
