2021 Probably the last year for the Wolsztyn Experience.
As indicated on our home page there are several reasons why this year is probably the last year for the Wolsztyn Experience to operate in its present form so if you want to participate on these unique footplate courses ring Nigel now on 01842 860436 or email him on email@example.com and register for a place. With a refundable £20 deposit. Our foot plating holiday courses let you experience what itís like to drive a steam train and not just any steam train. All the Wolsztyn locos are either on scheduled local services or long distance specials, so you really will find out what it was like to drive a steam loco all those years ago. You will have to pinch yourself to make sure youíre not dreaming as you thunder through the Polish countryside, enjoying the holiday of a lifetime learning how to drive a steam loco.
The cost is from £1585 for 4 round trips Wolsztyn to Leszno 30 miles each way with 11 station stops & starts in each direction, including 7 nightsí accommodation in the Wolsztyn house or at the depot. Both the Leszno and Poznan lines still have small sections of line that have to be upgraded these may not happen until 2022 but if they day the steam services will alter appropriately.
The full 2021 scheduled timetable is very similar to the 2020 ones but can be viewed under downloads. Here are the steam times.
The locos that will be operating during 2021 are Pt47-65 top picture Artur Wieczorek and Ol49-69 bottom picture Paul Davies.
