Spring is coming today in the morning is 10 C degrees so it's time to think about a trip. So one of the best ideaa is to take a trip using this great train.
The 785mm gauge railway of Upper Silesia is the world's oldest narrow gauge railway in continuous service. Its history dates back to the beginning of the XIXth century. In 1853 first sections were built. Steam locomotives came here in 1855, however it was a horse railway much earlier.
The most popular route, servicing both tourists and residents of Bytom, runs to Naklo-Chechlo reservoir in Misteczko Slaskie.The initial stop is at the railway station in Bytom, on platform five.
