Improvement of the state of the railway infrastructure in Poland
Author: Andrzej Massel
Poland is a country with a rather well-developed rail network. According to data from 31 December 2012 general length of railway lines was 19 191 km [2]. Some problem is the uneven distribution of infrastructure across the country and incomplete adaptation of the network to the needs of the economy. However, much more important problem is caused by the current state of the rail network in Poland, which does not meet the needs of rail operators, both passenger and freight. It prevents them from offering competitive services comparing to other modes of transport, resulting in a steadily decreasing share of railways in the transport market. 8 pages.

Railway touristic (2). Elite train tourism in Europe
Author: Joanna Hawlena
The development of railways in the European continent was a natural consequence of territorial expansion of proven in the UK new technical and organizational solutions in transport. An "industrial revolution" which began there quickly spread to other countries in continental Europe, where economic conditions were favourable to the development of this mode of transport. As in Britain, railways began operating from a horse traction. The first publicly available horse railway lines were opened in the Czech Republic already in 1827.

Work acceptances on railway track
Author: Arkadiusz Kampczyk, Tomasz Bort
The aim of this article is to present issues related to the ongoing construction work acceptances with a focus on the track work. There is presented a terminology for current repairs, major and modernization of railway lines with issues of interoperable, operational and final acceptances. An analysis and evaluation of legal regulations and requirements for the measurement of various parameters of the track were done, describing its geometry. Subsequently, was defined what should be absolutely required measurements at the stage of exploitation acceptance, which is the basis to the track opening to traffic with the appropriate speed. 7 pages.

Diesel traction units type GTW Stadler on the PKP PLK Network
Author: Marek Graff
Train units from the GTW family (Ger. Gelenktriebwagen) are designed and produced by Stadler train units with diesel or electric drives, capable of getting to the normal or narrower track (vehicles on the track wide were not yet ordered). These vehicles - only with diesel engine - for several years also appear on PLK network in use on local passenger connections with foreign carriers colours: UBB (Uznamska Railway bathing) and DB Regio. So far, none of the Polish entities decided to purchase or lease similar vehicles. 3 pages.

Comparative analysis of consuming energy by high speeds trains depending on the applied power supply system
Author: Włodzimierz Jefimowski
The quality of rail passenger transport service is a major factor influencing its competitiveness with other modes of transport. Factors affecting the quality essentially are time and comfort. They have a particular impact on the costs of preparing adequate infrastructure, the purchase of rolling stock and energy costs. The share of energy costs in the budget of conventional and HS railways tends to increase in EU countries due to the increasing speed and constant increase of electricity prices [1]. Therefore, the problem of improvement of energy efficiency has a significant place in EU transport policy. 4 pages.
