Welcome to the Steam Locomotive Shed in Wolsztyn
Wolsztyn’s shed is still an operating steam locomotive depot that runs mainline steam-hauled trains on regularly scheduled passenger services to Leszno and Poznań. This is the one and only place where workshops, machines, locomotives’ maintenance facilities and other objects of technical background can be seen.
It is not some kind of a heritage park or a museum created particularly to present the steam engines and their facilities. It is a real, working roundhouse that has been fully operational for more than 100 years. Every day only there you can see red-hot, belching out steam locos.

We are pleased to announce that the picture chosen to be the Picture of the Year 2008 was taken by Maciej STEHBACH, a keen enthusiast of both steam locomotives and photography.

The picture sums up the whole year in the Wolsztyn shed in one frame More
