June 11, 2020, Thursday
Our Poland tour, which you can book independently of, or in connection with the subsequent European trip, starts around noon at Berlin Central Station, from where we take the EuroCity train (1st class seating) to Zbaszynek. From there, you can either take the bus or the regular steam train to Wolsztyn – depending on train times that will be available later in the summer timetable 2021. Wolsztyn is home to 3 operational steam locomotives (2 class Ol49 and the famous Pt47), which are used to haul service trains in the summer.

Overnight in a 4-star hotel in Zbaszyn.
Meals: dinner.

June 12, 2020, Friday
Depending on the steam schedule, we will either ride on the train or visit the Wolsztyn depot. Then we continue to Poznan and check in to our 4-star hotel on the edge of the old town. In the afternoon we explore the city on a special trip on a historic tram.

Overnight in Poznan.
Meals: breakfast, dinner.

The narrow-gauge railway in Znin is our destination today. The 600mm-railway was built in the years 1893-94 to give the countryside a better access to the „big“ city Poznan. Today the tracks end at Gasawa. We take one of the regular passenger trains on the preserved railway, and will return to Wenecja to visit the interesting railway museum. Around 20 steam locomotives and many other exhibits await us. The return trip to Poznan is by bus.

Overnight in Poznan.
Meals: breakfast, dinner.

June 14, 2020, Sunday
The next narrow-gauge preserved railway in the Poznan area can be found at Sroda, once home to the “Sredzka Kolej Powiatowa”, founded in 1902 on narrow and standard gauge. In the 1950s, the network was consolidated and all routes were switched to narrow gauge (750mm).
We ride one of the scheduled, steam-hauled passenger trains from Sroda to Zaniemysl and back.

Overnight in Poznan.
Meals: breakfast, dinner.

June 15, 2020, Monday
