Wolsztyn Steam Trains

Steam locomotive, wolstyn, Poland

Early autumn at the steam locomotive shed in Wolstzyn, in the west of Poland.

Steam Railways of Poland

Wolsztyn is the centre of steam in Poland. It is home to a wonderful open-air museum consisting of a steam locomotive shed / depot; turntable; and a wide collection of working, rare, mainline Polish steam locomotives. Every day several passenger and freight trains leave Wolsztyn on route to locations in Lubuskie, Wielkopolskie and other parts of western Poland. Here are a few photographs taken in and around Wolsztyn in western Poland.

Does anyone have a current (2007) timetable of steam trains to/from the town? The latest I can find are 2005 times... Thanks - Chris in England

Editor - the timetable is now updated to show times for 2007. Thanks for the reminder :-)
