The Summer steam railtour season has started in earnest. The Children’s Day Pirat special from Poznan to Kolobrzeg was a ‘sellout’ which was hardly surprising – the trip was subsided by the office of the Chief Executive of Wielkopolska province and tickets were only 76 zloty return. As in previous years, the special did not stop at Kolobrzeg station but continued along the siding through the town to the dockside.

Several other steam railtours are planned for this year. The Institute for the Development and Promotion of Railways (IRPIK) is running the majority of these tours. The current programme includes the following:
