The Steam Locomotive Shed in Wolsztyn
Wolsztyn's shed is still an operating steam locomotive depot that runs mainline steam-hauled trains on regularly scheduled passenger services to Leszno and Poznań. This is the one and only place where workshops, machines, locomotives' maintenance facilities and other objects of technical background can be seen.
Museum- at first, the collection was presented rather chaotically. Later, it was systematized. Practically, it shows the whole profile of the railway history in that region. There you may see the exhibits of motion and trade services (the ticket office and stationmaster's quarters), traction services (the shed's equipment, the elements of steam locos' devices, the documents, the shed's offices' stamps), communication devices (switchboards, telephones), road services (railway traffic safety devices - level crossing devices, switchboards, railway systems, lamps, pointers etc.) Many museum pieces were gained from private collections and donations of retired railway workers.
