Fire swept through the workshops of the Myslecinska Kolej Parkowa (Myslinek Park Railway) on the night of 7/8 September destroying locomotives, carriages and workshop equipment. The destroyed rolling stock included items from the Bydgoszcz Narrow Gauge Railway (part of the erstwhile Bydgoszcz and Wyrzysk Narrow Gauge Railways) and the Znin Railway.

The Myslinek Park Railway ran for 3.5 km through a recreational area on the northern outskirts of Bydgoszcz. A hat tip to Podroznik for the story.
