Przewozy Regionalne (PR) were recently given an ultimatum by PKP’s infrastructure company, PLK PLK – pay the outstanding track charges, or stop running trains on our track. PR have just made a partial payment, so PKP PLK have told PR – you can continue to run trains on our track, but you must cut your services by 1/5!

    See previous comments regarding inability of PKP/PR/Cargo to run the proverbial in a Brewery.

    You couldn’t make this up if you tried.

    I can see Polish Railways running in ever decreasing circles and disappearing into their own tunnel soon. Unless it has been closed due to non payment of access charges.

    As far as I can see, and from what I have been made aware of, track access charges are far in excess of market forces given that the fares are so low and if such fees are not sustainable then fewer trains will run and less monies generated. So no one wins.
