Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
#1 - Oficially there are only two orders for 9 Dragons (4 for STK and 5 for LOTOS). NEWAG/ZNLE owner oficially said that they are negotiating another one for Balkans (and it's completed in 70%, they just need to establish financing conditions with ING Lease). Unoficially there can be another one - DB Schenker Rail Polska was very impressed by Dragon and they are seriously considering it as a replacement for their current (very old) fleet.

I don't think there will be such strong recession, Poland was the only EU country that avoided recession 3 years ago. Polish economy is in good condition, national debt is in control, I don't think there will be serious problems like in Greece or Italy.

Oh, and Newag already survived hard times, between 2007 and 2009 there were basically no orders, they cut jobs by almost 50% and survived without serious losses.
