ShowMeTheJourney has been on a train formed of Hungarian coaches on a Budapest to Warszawa journey...and has experienced Warszawa to Prague/Praha trains that comprised a mix of Polish and Czech coaches.

Though the coaches mainly used on these Polish express trains operated by PKP are to be found on most of these EC routes and departures

These trains 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.
