European Railway Stations Part 15
Author: andersonb109

Now to Poland. Most stations in Poland seem to have bold lettering giving away their location. So most were not included in my "where is it" series. Here is Leszno Station, rather cluttered with advertising signage. It has the distinction of being only one of two stations in the world with nearly daily steam passenger service...in this case from Wolsztyn. Photo taken on a TUT tour in 2007. Several more from Poland to follow.

Correction: Only one of two stations in the world with nearly daily standard gauge, regular steam passenger service.
The Harzer Schmalspurbahnen, Fichtelbergbahn, Weißeritztalbahn, Lößnitzgrundbahn, Zittauer Schmalspurbahn, Mecklinburgische Bäderbahn (Molli), and the Rügensche Bäderbahn (Rasender Roland) all provide nearly daily, regular narrow gauge steam operations serving an actual transportation service, to name just the most prominent examples in Germany.

My bad! Should have known better as I've ridden most of those. Isle of Man might also qualify?

That is one of the few stations in your series that seems to be covered with advertising.
Thanks for another interesting posting.

Maybe there was retail on the second floor. I don't recall. In and out very quick during loco turn.

Looks relatively modern.

Perhaps an earlier station didn't survive the Soviet onslaught in 1944/1945.
