The railway junction Wolsztyn, situated between beautiful lakes would not be interesting alone for this one feature. On the lines starting from here (to Leszno, Poznan and Zbaszynek) the landscape is pretty similar and the town itself is less prominent than the ones at the other ends of the lines. The line from Leipzig to Posen (present-day Poznan) was important in Prussia though and therefore the station where the branches South and North forked became an important place for the railway. The steamer on the left-hand side track is on its way to Zbaszyn, where it is going to turn on the Warszawa-Berlin main line to get to the next town of Zbaszynek. The other track used to lead to Sulechów (and Leipzig), but the section beyond the first station (Powodowo) was dismantled in 2015, after the closure for freight traffic in 2005 and passenger traffic in 1994. The Poznan direction was renovated between 2007-2013. The platform is not very old, special trains can use it to reach Wolsztyn Skansen . It is situated inside the line of the entrance signals of Wolsztyn station.
