EC (Austria, Hungary, Czech - Poland)

The trains vary on these EC (EuroCity) routes to/from Poland 

We have been on a train formed of Hungarian coaches on Budapest to Warszawa journey.

We have seen Warszawa to Prague/Praha trains that comprise a mix of Polish and Czech coaches - and seen a Warszawa to Wien train composed solely of Polish (PKP) coaches.

In Austria, Hungary, Poland and The Czech republic, these trains are also used on 'Intercity' - IC/EIC services

Therefore they tend to have a slightly old fashioned sense of style and comfort, with seats that line up with the windows - but can lack modern amenities such as Wi-Fi and electronic info screens etc.

If you're travelling 1st class, then on the Polish part of the journey, you'll be offered complimentary hot/cold drinks and snacks at your seat.

The 'other' rail pass that's valid on many of these trains is the 'European East' pass.
