Under the deal, which was signed at Pesa's Bydgoszcz plant, Pesa will hold a 51% stake in Rail Capital Partners (RCP), while the state-owned PFR will hold the remaining 49%.

RCP will be capitalised with Zlotys 200m ($US 52m) from the two partners between 2016 and 2020, with Pesa providing a new fleet of Gama Marathon locomotives.
