the tiny narrow gauge railway in Stare Kurowo, Lubuskie, Poland

The small town of Stare Kurowo in Lubuskie has as several other locations throughout Poland used to have a short 600mm gauge railway line. The railway wagons are moved around the few hundred metres of track by a small diesel locomotive and operates from a concrete block works to within a few metres of the mainline PKP line. The line crosses the main road through the town and because of this there is also a manually operated level crossing.
