    Track modernisation south of Czachówek going well /Link

    Tangible progress in five weeks; on the train to Chynów I could see that work is moving ahead at a good pace. New overhead power line pylons are up on one side of the track all the way from Sułkowice to Chynów. Both platforms are in operation, it looks like Chynów is a passing point for trains between Warsaw and Radom.

    Below: a Warsaw-bound EN71 leaves Chynów and crosses from the 'up' track to the 'down' track.

    Below: at Chynów itself, the goods siding to the east of the main line has been lifted. It will be here that the 'up' platform should be located once the island platform disappears and the main line is straightened. This will mean a shorter walk from my działka to the station.

    Below: this is odd - the town-bound 15:34 train is heading up along the 'down' line; unusual, because the two pics up you can see the previous train to town moving along the right track.

    And what's this? Below: A Radom train heading down on the 'up' line - most unusual.

    Passing through Sułkowice, the platform has been dissected with a wire fence. This is what happened at Jeziorki and other stations between W-wa Okęcie and Czachówek; half the platform is demolished; the remaining half serves trains in both directions while one of the two brand new platforms is built on the outside of the tracks, relaid to run straight rather than curving around a single island platform.

    Below: a woman with a bicycle and shopping bags struggles to get up into the train. Once the new platforms have been built, this inconvenience should become a thing of the past.

    Bonus shot: autumn view from my balcony. Lovely place, Jakubowizna.
