Remarks & Notes 
A small series of pictures from the regular steam service in Wolsztyn. By 2012 they used passenger coaches in a modern livery; hence I avoided photographing them. But the lines were still beautiful, with telegraph poles (cut down now) and semaphores. Special light situation was the best option to make the trains looking authentic.

Telegraph Pole
The small gradient beyond Szreniawa required an open regulator, however, it was too warm to see any exhaust steam effects. Indeed it was so warm that thunderstorm clouds built up in the afternoon which enabled graphical effects.

Photos showing the railroad pole lines. The pole line used four basic electrical circuits - telegraph, telephone, signaling, and power. Modern technologies of fiber optics, microwave, radio, satellite, and computers have been replacing the pole lines.
