Pesa Dart EMU design
bikkuri bahn posted a topic in Worldwide RailHere is a maker I was not aware of, Pesa of Poland. This is their Dart HSR design, initially tested for 160km/h max. operational speed. I like how the side profile is similar to Japanese rolling stock designs with open space visible in the underframes, rather than the skirting favored by the big three. Where does this maker slot in in terms of price point in the world rolling stock market?

new JR Shikoku express EMU type
miyakoji posted a topic in Japan Rail: News & General DiscussionJust saw this linked on Ompuchaneru. A new express EMU for JR Shikoku, but it doesn't tilt like the 8000 series.
