|My Son Billy and I had the Experience of a lifetime at Wolsztyn this June beginning, ironically enough, on Father's Day! Only in Wolsztyn can you have the opportunity to put on your boots and step back in time 60 years. A big "Thank You" to everyone who make the Wolsztyn Experience happen.|

I attended a one week course at Wolsztyn in May and I must say it was fantastic!
Although we had a few 'operational problems' such as a hotbox on the PT47, it all added to what was a wonderful experience.
Being on the footplate on the main line was a boyhood dream for me, as I'm sure it was and is for many, and to be able to do that in this day and age is simply incredible.
Many thanks to Howard and Alex for a fantastic week, an experience I'll never forget and one I'd heartily recommend to anyone with an interest in steam.
I'll definitely be coming back!

|The photograph of a snow-covered Pt47-65 leaving Granowo in the latest 'News',as at 25 feb, reminded me of my first encounter with deep snow drifts during a week in early january this year. It was on the stretch from Granowo to Ptaskowo;when we hit the first one,at c60mph,we lost all forward vision such was the force with which we hit the drift and instinctively slid open the cab side window and leant out.A big mistake,as we then hit the second drift! Janusc and Marek were not at all sympathetic as I withdrew my snow covered head back into the cab!Pt47-65 was superb all week,never losing its feet and a pleasure to be on,even if it looked a little lost with just two or three 'wagons'.But how sad to see PKP make such a hash of the snow,no doubt causing even more rail passengers to find other forms of transport,probably permanently.Anyway ,I can now add 'travelling through snowdrifts at speed' to the very long list of factors that,for me, distinguish the W.E. from all the other ' footplate experiences' and for that,Howard and Trevor,I am truly grateful.|

|This was one of the best weeks of my life. Getting out of bed at 4:00 in the morning to take the 5:05 train the 51 miles from Wolsztyn to Posnan. Travelling along in the pitch dark at 60 miles an hour is something I will never forget!
Howard jones, who runs the Wolsztyn experience from the house in Wolsztyn along with his brother Trevor in the U.K. have created a totally unique vacation for steam enthusiasts from all over the world. Now in it's thirteenth successful year I highly reccommend it. I found the polish people very helpful and friendly. The local restaurants are good, and cheap. Fillet steak and a bottle of nice red wine for two only £16:00! I cannot enthuse enough about this great experience. 10 out of 10.
