The Railway Building

The narrow-gauge railway and narrow gauge railway line

The narrow-gauge line was started in 1899. The first stage of building the line was completed, leading from Gliwice to Nieborowice. Subsequent sections were completed in 1903 when Gliwice was connected with Raciborz - a 51 kilometers’ route. The station at Rudy was the largest on the entire line and it also served as the fleet repair workshop. The route was used to carry both people and goods.

Unfortunately, the main station building did not survive the war. Little remained of the old line. Today only a small section of the route operates, from Stanica to Paproć. Nowadays, you can find there many exhibits made available to visitors by the Society for the Protection of Railway Monuments, which takes care of the station and the train. The museum shows locomotives, steam locomotives, passenger coaches and freight coaches. The attraction for the youngest is a ride on the Rudy - Paproć route on an open-carriage train, or a trolley ride.
