    Description

    The development of narrow- gauge railway lines in the neighborhood of Starachowice was closely connected with industrial and mining activities carried out within the framework of an inter-war project known as the Central Industrial Region. A network of narrow-railway lines was built in order to connect the blast furnace of Starachowice and timber- mill on Bugaj with the mines of Majówka, Mikołaj, Zębiec, Władysław, and Henryk as well as with numerous timber loading facilities. Today the Starachowice Narrow-Gauge Railway Line offers 6km rides on the route joining Wierzbnik (Eastern Starachowice Station) with the village of Lipie.

    Starachowice - Lipie, departures 10:30am, 1:30pm, 5pm
