It is an old train line. It was built in I World War by Germans as a supply way for army. In 28 February 1915 German engeneering military division start work. Line was built from Rogow to east direction. When front line went to east far from Warsaw, the line was use as a economy supply way. At the end of 1917 Rogow train line was open for passengers in Rogow - Biala Rawska - Zdzary. In 1921 line to Zdzary was close down and demontage. Between 1921-1935 line was rebuild, wooden military elements was replace by steel (bridges). Train transport cargo and people. Usually had two cars for people and two for cargo.
The line was build and use till 1949 as a 600 mm wide line. In 1950 in central point Rogow was biuld brick bulding for locomotive. Buildig replace old wooden building, but was short - only for 5 locomotive. Old one had 10 places. In 1545 line was rebuild to 750 mm wide. It taken only 4 moths. Rogow - Biala Rawska line was industrial use till 2001. Rogow station has biggest collection of small locomotive. Some of them still works, other are reconstruct by hobbyists. You can make a trip from Rogow to Jezow. On station Jezew you may spend time with campfire and grill your sausage on long twig into the fire. Line from Jezow to Biala Rawska is rebuild. But works are refund from public donations. So it goes slow.
It is great time to spend with family and special for childern in 5 to 10 years old.
