On 1st September, the inaugural run took place of the first SKPL operated Czempin – Srem freight service. SKPL are interested in developing the service and are looking for ideas to make the line attractive for tourists. The possibility of running steam-hauled freight trains and mixed trains is being investigated. Anybody with a standard gauge steam engine looking for real trains to haul need look no further!

    Perhaps I’m just dense — but I’d been under the impression (BTWT post of 6/12/08; confirmed by news item in “Lok Report”) that the handover PKP — SKPL re freight on the Czempin — Srem line, had been “signed, sealed and concluded” w.e.f 4/12/08. Was that merely “notional”; and in fact PKP continued actually physically to work the line, until 1/9/09? Clarification would be greatly appreciated.
