Jeziorki rail scenes, winter
Above: A coal train on the main(electrified) line passing W-wa Jeziorki station, just a few km short of its destination, the sidings at Okęcie, from where the coal wagons will be hauled to Siekierki power station by diesel locos on the unelectrified track closest to the camera, which swings away from the main line boynd Nowa Iwiczna, the next station south of Jeziorki.
Above: Running 40 minutes late, the 12:57 Koleje Mazowieckie train from W-wa Wschodnia to Skarżysko-Kamienna. Two engines suggest a breakdown somewhere along the line. The next passenger service passing through, the 13:53 from W-wa Wschodnia to Radom, was on time to the minute, showing how difficult it is to generalise about railway punctuality in this weather.
Both pics taken between W-wa Jeziorki and W-wa Dawidy. The wooden snowdrift screens are now in place.
