Steam Train Heaven

Article's tools:

Lovers of steam trains should make for the village of Chabówka in the southern Polish highlands between Cracow and Zakopane on the weekend of Sept. 6-7 for the fourth annual steam gala.

Saturday will see the old engines start up once more for a "traction team" contest in which they pass through Sucha Beskidzka station, home to the Tabor Kolejowy (Rolling Stock) open-air museum. There will also be a heritage train procession along the Sucha Beskidzka-Skawce line, comprising passenger trains, freight trains and mixed trains all hauled by steam locomotives. A historic SN61-168 rail car will be arriving from the faraway western coastal city of Szczecin to join two historic locomotives and a rail car from Slovakia.

As an added attraction, people from Cracow, Lachowice, Mszana Dolna and Zakopane can take a vintage train to Sucha Beskidzka. On Sunday, you can watch an old steam engine being loaded up with coal and water for a journey and then hop into the driver's cabin and take the trip. refreshments will be served throughout the day.
