Xmas/New Year Competition – No. 10


The 10th mystery location. Satellite photo Google Maps.

Many years have passed since the last train ran along these hills and today the former narrow gauge railway has become a road. Sometimes the modern road abandons the former railway track and takes a more direct route where the trains once hugged the contour and took a more roundabout route.

Our last Google satellite view was the former site of the Radzymin terminus of the erstwhile Marecka Kolej Dojazdowa which was an important part of the transport infrastructure of Warsaw’s right bank and ran from Warszawa Wilanow station to Radzymin.

The first correct reply came from Inzynier who compared the copious clues with some of the information given in earlier BTWT posts. The other came from Waldemar Heise who utilised his Polish Ordnance maps (WIG) from the 1930s and came in with the answer some 8 hours later. So the point goes to Inzynier.
