||Diminutive diesel locomotive Lyd-1 253
at Pleszew Miasto, with the 13.23 to Pleszew Wąsk, on 22 April 1991.
||The EP07 class has been the standard electric passenger locomotive on
Polish Railways for many years. EP07-442 stands at Wroclaw Główny
heading the 05.45 from Szczecin Główny to Przemyśl, on 31 October 2005
||In the early nineties, steam locomotives
were still used on a few ordinary passenger trains in some areas.
Here Ty42-22 departs from Korsze in north-eastern Poland, with
the 17.05 to Bartoszyce, on 25 April 1991.
||Narrow-gauge Px48-1726 at Zaniemyśl,
with the 10.15 to Środa on 23 April 1991. This rural route to
the south-east of Poznań may have seemed like a museum railway,
but was in fact just an ordinary railway serving the local community.
Speeds were very slow, and the increasing level of car ownership
in Poland meant that the line could not survive, and it finally
closed in June 2001.
||Although many rural branch lines in Poland have closed in the last
20 years, the Kudowa branch in the south has survived. On 22 July 2009,
SU42-502 and a single coach formed the 09.02 from Kudowa Zdrój to Kłodzko,
seen here at Polanica Zdrój.
