Editors Notes: 

Our final Wolszyn experience takes us to the lineside near Belecin on 24th June 2018 where we see Polish class OL-49 2-6-2 no 49-69 race past tender-first with its lightweight two-coach commuter train. A few minutes earlier it had stood at Stefanowo where sister locomotive no 49-59 arrived before departing ahead of it. Chrzanow built 116 of these 2-6-2s after World War 2 to replace Prussian P8s and a number are retained at Wolsztyn for use on the Wolsztyn Experience commuter services, amongst others.
