Marta Kret, BTWT’s mole in the PKP Estate Department’s HQ, informs us that her boss has ordered a number of historic items of rolling stock to be valued prior to their sale.

Incredible as it may seem, nearly all the items on the list have already been placed in museums, or at least were set aside by PKP with the intention of being donated to museums.

This is a full list of the items, and their current location, for which a valuation has been requested:
