Forgotten Train Station - How Did We Get There?

We travelled to the southern part of Poland to visit the former capital city – Krakow. Of course, we were not interested in a casual tourist attraction. We found some urbex locations, and we choose an abandoned train graveyard for a first trip. The entrance to this place was quite easy. You have to go near an old bakery, next go through the bushes and that’s all! Ok, not completely all. The train graveyard in on the premises of a working station. Luckily nobody noticed us when we took the photos there, but be careful visiting this place, especially if you are there on working days. Despite this, we can recommend this object even for the urbex beginners. If you are careful enough, you can see the amazing, rusty trains.

Why Trains In Kraków Are Abandoned? - History Of Train Graveyard

Technical facilities were built in 1884, so when Poland was under partitions. There was erected two halls of which only one exists to this day, and they were used as a repair station. At that time Poland was under partitions, so the station was owned by the Austrian CLB railway – Carl Ludwig Bahn. After Poland regained independence, the station was expanded. There train depots, car washes, water tower and foundries were built. In 1927 the station was completed, but in fact, it was still developing. After WWII the railway junction was expanded, and the worker’s houses were built. Unfortunately, a terrible thing also happened.
The communist authorities removed the beautiful station building and replaced it with an awful concrete block. They may have good intention to remove the remains of the partition, but they destroyed the landscape dramatically. Nowadays some buildings are in use, some of them abandoned. Ok, but why the trains in the graveyard are abandoned? It’s hard to say. There are a lot of rusty locomotives there, but nobody admits to them.
