„Koleje na Ziemi Głubczyckiej”
(Railways in the Glubczycki Region)
Author: Robert Ślęzok

In the Glubczycki region - a historical part of Silesia, near the borders of today’s Glubczycki district and part of the Kozielski district - a railway already existed at the beginning of the second half of the 19th century. The two most important towns - Głubczyce (Leobschutz) and Baborów (Bauerwitz) - were connected with the Upper Silesian railway network from the direction of Raciborz. The 150th anniversary of the establishment of passenger service on the Raciborz - Glubczyce section, which fell in 2005 - as well as the ignominious 50th anniversary of the closure of passenger

service on that same segment - contributed to the creation of a monograph on the history of railways in the historical Glubczycki Region. Today’s appearance of the Glubczyce station presents us with the darkest vision of the future of Polish railways. There’s no other choice than to return to older, better times, when steam locomotives passed with a whistle and crowds of passengers swarmed on the platforms.
