Editors Notes: 

As mentioned in our last clip, one of the highlights of the recent Steam Railway tour to Poland in June 2018 was to experience parallel running of two steam trains - on a main line! This took place past Chrosnica station on 24th June and involved two of the OL-49 Prairie 2-6-2 tender engines, each heading a pair of coaches used on the tour. There's no need to imagine the sight of these two magnificent machines bearing down on you - here you can experience it!
