We have finally arrived in Wolsztyn and caught the afternoon steam train from the yard of a friendly Polish family. This is a real steam paradise and quite authentic, which has always been a problem for me as I seldom saw steam trains in Hungary going with a fitting set of cars (this jubilee train had been one notable exception). As my perspective changed and I started visiting destinations further away the number of nice steam trains I have photographed has increased and hopefully will continue to increase - after all, this is the original train as a concept. Wolsztyn is a place every train buff should visit, but Poland's other steam depot at Chabówka is also interesting, even though it's pure museum duty, not daily, timetabled live steam like at Wolsztyn.
