Pendo Leaning

After their well publicised problems in January 2006, CD's pendolino units appeared to be operating reliably by June. 680.003 was photographed leaning into the curve as it accelerated away from Parnik with SC502, the 05:45 Ostrava to Praha SuperCity service on 11 June 2006. Although the pendolinos were booked to cover the 358 km in 40 minutes less than loco hauled InterCity services, little of the difference appeared to be due to the tilt as the line is fairly straight most of the way.
