DVD: NARROW GAUGE AT WORK Number 15
SUGAR BEET IN POLAND
Even in 2003 the Polish sugar beet industry still used narrow gauge railways to transport beet, supplies for the sugar factories, and also the by-products of sugar beet processing. This DVD takes a close look at some of the railways associated with several of these sugar factories mostly of 750mm gauge.
There is comprhensive footage of the factories and rail systems at Kruszwica, Dobre, and Brzesc, filmed in October 2000. From the mid 1990s, there is brief non-digital footage of Tuczno and Znin factories, plus other locations are seen in passing. All three main classes of industrial Polish diesels are seen in action, the Lxd2 (BoBo), LYd2 (0-6-0DH), and the WLS150(Lyd1) (0-4-0DM).
