Still More Polish Steam 1993-5
Author: gbmott

Tonight it is Ol49's, the widely-utilized 2-6-2s that are among the last survivors today.  I kept running into Ol49 3 when not expected.  I first encountered it running on a special out of Szczecin in summer of 1993 and assumed it was assigned there but never found a record of that.  By February of 1994 it was assigned to Ełk at the opposite end of the country and I photographed it there when being used in regular service for driver qualification trips.  Finally, it showed up again in Warsaw in 1995 for the big 150th Anniversary that was held there.

5.  Ol49 23 - Wolsztyn May 8, 1993
6.  Ol49 59 - Wolsztyn May 7, 1993

. . . more

. . . and I forgot the most elusive of the seven Ol49s operational at Wolsztyn at the time,

10.  Ol49 32 - Wolsztyn, May 7, 1993 -- only time I saw her.

There were other operational Ol49s also --

11.  Ol49 93 - Warsaw Głowna, June 12, 1995.  This was another Ełk locomotive that had been stored whenever I was there but was reactivated for the 1995 150th celebration.
12.  Ol49 99 - Szczecin, August 14, 1993

one more . . . .

. . .  finally, there was Chabowka's only Ol49, number 100.  It made it around the system pretty extensively.

13.  Ol49 100 - Krakow Plaszow, August 13, 1993
14.  Ol49 100 - Stalowa Wola, September 4, 1993

. . . that's all folks.
