Footplating holidays and courses with the Wolsztyn Experience 

Please read the home page for up to date news on 2023 footplating courses.
Our foot plating holiday courses let you experience what it’s 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 you’re not dreaming as you thunder through the Polish countryside, enjoying the holiday of a lifetime learning how to drive a steam loco.
The Wolsztyn Experience footplating courses and holidays in Poland may not continue in its present form 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 and register for a place. With a refundable £20 deposit.
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 nights’ 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.
