(Following the closure of the museum at Koscierzyna, PKP Cargo have removed the link to the skansen’s page on their website, Clicking the picture will (for the time being at least) take you to the defunct page together with the slide show of which the above photograph is a part.)

Further to our last article about security cover being removed from the Koscierzyna Skansen we have been informed by a reliable source that PKP has extended the security contact to the end of the year. This will provide a breathing space for those parties interested in taking over the museum and its collections to continue, and we hope complete, their negotiations with PKP.

Our grateful thanks to all those who took part in our letter writing campaign. We have fired a useful warning shot. If any PKP Director ever again contemplates abandoning railway a railway museum without securing the future of its exhibits, as happened in the cases of Elk and Jaworzyna Slask, hopefully this time he will think again.
