Railways in Poland

Here are six photographs taken earlier today on a Przewozy Regionalne (Regional Railways) train journey from the city of Gorzów in the western province of Lubuskie. The railway network in Poland consists of around 14,000 miles of track, most of which is powered by overhead electricity. The dominant rail operator is Polskie Koleje Panstwowe (PKP) / Polish State Railways.
