1.09.2006, Sugar refinery owned Wls150 750mm gauge shunter on a private siding at Brzeszcz Kujawski sugar refinery

Following the closure of the Krosniewice Railway on 1 April by the Mayor of Krosniewice, the National Sugar Association, the owners of the sugar refinery at Brzeszcz Kujawski have decided to close the refinery. Although sugar beet was no longer brought into the refinery by narrow guage rail, other raw materials such as coal were brought in, and refined sugar was taken out, loaded in standard gauge wagons carried on 750mm gauge transporter wagons.

The Wloclawek District Council is demanding a reversal of the decision.
