The New Year’s Eve Steam Special from Chabowka to Zakopany this year has an an outlaw theme. The legend of Janosik – a Robin Hood like figure – permeates local folklore in the land of the mountain people, the Gorale. For 200 PLN a head, or 390 PLN for two, you get includes traditional Polish food, folk musicians and a band of outlaws, the grilling of Polish garlic sausages over a bonfire, some booze, a glass of fizzy wine AND a Ty2 steam pulling your vintage train from Chabowka to Zakopane and return.
