    In Poland they are still running a few scheduled passenger trains pulled by steam engines. What's even better is if you have the funds in your anorack pocket you can go and drive them for a week, under instruction of course. :crazy

    So this is a bit of a cheat, because my accomodation was in the engine drivers quarters I had 24 hour access to the yard, however, at night the roundhouse was closed up and out of bounds.

    One night I noticed a door wasn't properly closed so came back with my camera. While I was in there the shed foreman and a fitter came in to check on the engines so I had to move around to keep out of sight, reminded me of my train spotting days nearly 40 years ago, it was great :D

    Further down the line are four very sad looking locos, unortunately I don't think these will ever run again. Most of the removeable items such as levers and whistles were missing, I just hope they have been removed and stored rather than stolen.
