Originally Kraków was not connected to Warszawa directly - the Kraków and Upper Silesian Railway offered connections towards Prussia and Warszawa could be reached through the Warszawa-Vienna Railway. This tunnel together with the railway that was visible in the previous photos (directly next to the broad-gauge freight train) ran from the Warszawa-Lublin line through Radom and Kielce to Olkusz, near the Prussian border and was opened in 1885. Radom was connected to Warszawa only after the creation of the new Polish state in 1934, the same year a branch line was built from Tunel to Kraków. The Centralna Magistrala Kolejowa now serves as the high-speed rail link to the south and Kozlów, at the Northern end of the tunnel can be reached from the CMK on a branch from Psary. Since its opening the Warszawa-Kraków trains has been running on this route.
