Koleje Mazowieckie 5170  
in short
order details
It really went fast. Only seven months after siging the contract, Bombardier was able to outshop the first Traxx DC for Koleje Mazowieckie from Poland. In the last days of 2010, the first unit was transported from Vado Ligure, Italy, to Poland.

At the test tracks of Węglewo, Poland, the first trials were made with the new and colourful locomotives, temporary designated as E583.001 to 011. In August KM started first trials in revenue services, with its 37 Bombardier-built double deck coaches.

On 29.08.2011, Bombardier officially handed over all eleven units to KM. Since then they are known as EU47 series, or 5170 series when you prefer digits.

KM 5170: details

On 21.04.2010, Bombardier was awarded with a 41 million order for eleven new electrics by Polish operator Koleje Mazowieckie (KM). Until the end, also a Chinese manufacturer was in the running for building these machines, but finally the German-Canadians won.

For the first time, Traxx DC units (P160DC) will be specifically built for passenger services, meaning that they will have a top speed of 160 kph and will have all neccessary equipment on board for push-pull services with the Bombardier double-deck rakes, already operated by KM.


On 28.09.2010, the first painted body of a Traxx P160DC for Polish operator Koleje Mazowieckie was presented in the Bombardier factory in Wroclaw. The end-result is playful and optimistic, making a standard Traxx body a bit more dynamic all of a sudden. The design is made by Dominica Niksy, a student of SGGW - the Warsaw University of Life Sciences. - RK/MJ

On 28-29.12.2010, the first KM unit was transported from Vado Ligure in Italy to Poland, via Germany. Its designation is E583.001.
