Railroading in Warsaw (Prototype and Model)

Railroading in Warsaw (Prototype and Model)

Postby sacto-tt » Thu Jun 07, 2012 4:46 pm

This July I'll be in Warsaw, Poland for a few weeks. Can anyone give me any info on the Warsaw Railway Museum - it looks pretty interesting on their website - and any hobby shops that would be worth visiting? Most of my free time will be on the weekends and evenings (I am there to work after all). I try and check out the railroad offerings wherever I go and since the members of this board are from all over, this seemed like a good place to ask. :mrgreen:

Thanks. Joe

Hi Joe,
When I lived in Poland the Railroad Museum was located only about a 15 min walk from Warsaw Central station,
at the location "Warszawa Glowna Osobowa" station.

The best place is to ask anything on the subject of our hobby would be on TT Forum PL, the link http://forumtt.pl/
Write in English, there are going to be people happy to answer.

I hope they would give You the best information, becuse everything changes with time; I left Poland about thirty years ago, and I do visit my familly there every few years, but it is not the same.

Anather good place to visit is Museum Techniki located in "Palac Kultury".
They have a nice collection of large scale models of locomotives and cars, specific to Poland.

Close to Warsaw, in Sochaczew, there is one of the biggest in Europe, narrow gauge museum.
Have a great visit and please let us know how it went.

Voytek - Thanks for the information. I'll check up on the leads you provided. Checking out railroad and science museums in other countries is always enlightening and a lot of fun.
