One of the recently introduced class SA133, No 005,

which work services from Krakow Glowny to Krakow Airport.

 

Passengers boarding this unit at Krakow Glowny

endure a long drop into the unit,

which sits considerably lower than the platform,

 

a feature that would certainly not be allowed on UK railways.

 

 

 

 

Class EU07, No. 091 awaits the signal at Krakow Glowny station

on 17 August 2008.

 

Built by Pafawag in Poland, 483 of this Bo-Bo class

were delivered beteen 1965 and 1994.

 

As can be seen, it is based on the English Electric built

class EU06,

 

which, in turn, owes much of its lineage

to the English Electric class 83.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Class EN 57, No 2042

awaits departure from Krakow Glowny station

on 17 August 2008.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Class EP09, No. 046,

rolls into Krakow Glowny station

on 17 August 2008.

 

The class consists of 47 locos,

which were built in Poland by Pafawag

between 1961 and 1993.

 

Twelve of the class are allocated to Krakow Prokocim depot

and the remainder to that at Warsaw.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Class EN57, No. 1420,

awaits departure from Zakopane

on 21 August 2008.

 

This large class of locos was built in Poland by Pafawag

between 1961 and 1993.

 

 

 

 

Two classes of electric multiple units EN71 and ED72

bask in the sun awaiting their next turn of duty

at Krakow Glowny station

on 21 August 2008.

 

The ED72 class was built as an upmarket replacement

for the more Spartan EN71 class

 

but both classes are still very much in use,

running side by side on local services.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One of the relatively new, class SN61 Diesel Multiple units,

awaits departure from Krakow Glowny

on 21 August 2008,

 

bound for Wadowice.

 

 

 

 

 

English Electric built, class EU06 No. 01,

backs on to its train at

Krakow Glowny station on 17 August 2008.

 

Twenty of these BO – BO locomotives were delivered

to Polish Railways in 1962.

 

Nicknamed “The Anglik” (the Englishman),

around fifteen of the class remain in active service.
