Przewoznik has sent a link to a great piece of photo reportage by Peter Wilhelm showing the progress on the 40 million PLN renovation project on the Gryfice Narrow Gauge Railway.

The project is primarily concerned with the station buildings on the section Trzesacz – Pogorzelica:

  1. Rebuilding the station building in Rewal,

  2. Rebuilding the station building in Rewal in Pogorzelica,

  3. Rebuilding the station building in Niechorze and building a tourist information centre,

  4. Building a new station building in Trzesacz,

  5. Building a new station building in Sliwin,

  6. Building a new station building in Niechorze

The project also involves some infrastructure works: rebuilding 11km of track within the boundary of the Rewal municipality and building a bridge across the Liwka canal in Niechorze.

Finally, the project envisages some modernisation and repair work on the line’s passenger rolling stock and a heavy overhaul for the railway’s solitary steam locomotive.

Some 15.5 million PLN of the project cost is an EU grant; the remaining 24.5 million PLN is being funded by the Rewal Municipality (the owner of the line) and the Zachodniopomorskie provincial government.
