Smigiel Snow

Shunting in the snow at Smigiel. A still from a video by bosz112.

It’s a strange paradox that, the harder I work at trying to do something about the mess that Polish heritage railways find themselves in, the less time I have to post to BTWT. This week has been particularly hectic. I promise to return to a more normal frequency of posting next week. In the meantime, here is something to celebrate the survival of the Smigiel Railway as a real working railway. A good friend sent me a link to this brilliant video of the Smigiel Railway which I am sure many readers will enjoy.

Just a gentle reminder, if you are one of our campaigners who wrote to the Mayor of Smigiel asking him to do all he can to keep the Smigiel Railway running as a real working railway, perhaps now is the time to drop him a note of thanks for negotiating an agreement that will allow SKPL to continue running the line?
