The Czech train operating company CD took delivery of the first two of seven tilting Pendolino trains last year, but they will not be put into service until next year due to problems the trains cause with the Czech signalling system.
The trains were ordered ten years ago but have been delayed as train maker CKD went bankrupt. A new deal was signed with Alstom which has now built all seven trains. The trains are to run Berlin-Praha-Wien, and will cut the Berlin-Praha trip time from 4.40 to 3.00. See also background story and usenet discussion.
