We have already featured Tomasz Domzalski’s amazing photography in our post ‘The fire goes out in the last Tr5 in the world’. Well it seemed that we spoke too soon, for Tr5-65 received another extension to its boiler certificate. The Towarzystwo Przyjaciol Wolsztynskiej Parowozowni (Friends of Wolsztyn Shed), which had organised a very successful ‘Farewell to Tr5’ special in December, rapidly organised another special for 6 February. Unfortunately, it appears that we were right to be pessimistic after all. The boiler certificate extension is only intended to allow the Tr5 to perform at this year’s Wolsztyn gala not for the engine to work in revenue earning service. We trust that the many visitors from abroad who booked to travel behind the Tr5 were not too disappointed. Meanwhile if there is anyone out there who would like to sponsor the Tr5’s next major overhaul, PKP Cargo would be delighted to hear from you… .
