Probably a unique opportunity in the world is to go and take part in one of these driving courses, operating regular steam hauled train serives on Polish state railways. The scheme is run by the Wolsztyn Experience, and remains economic because of the subsidy which PKP (the state rail company) recives for retaining steam opperation. Training is on the job, and by the end of the week us trainees get to have complete (though of course supervised) control of the engine, working to the scheduled timetable, which seems to work by going as fast as possible between stations on the run, sometimes at 100-110 km/hr.
