Help save a narrow gauge railway - Poland

Help save a narrow gauge railway - Poland

The Krosniewice Railway, one of the most interesting Polish narrow gauge railways - which operated regular passenger services and carried a substantial freight traffic - is closing because the Mayor of Krosniewice has teamed up with a property developer. Krosniewice Coucil is in the process of acquiring the railway land from PKP, the Polish State Railway Company, for transport purposes. But the Mayor is planning a big property development and the railway workshops are in her way. SKPL, the operator of the line, opposed the demolition of the workshops and, for their pains, have had their operator’s licence terminated by the Mayor.

We are asking for help and publicity.

Re: Help save a narrow gauge railway - Poland

It is the utmost form of land use folly and hubris to dismantle railroad rights-of-way. The need for connectivity and corridors to accommodate communication options in the future is only increasing. Just because the current use has ceased to be viable for the present doesn’t mean that future options should be foreclosed.

There really is no viable way to recreate such communication corridors in the current (or foreseeable) regulatory climate. For these reasons it should be left as it is.
