About The Odolany Coal Tower in September, 2020.

In September, 2020, Gary Granai and his wife Katarzyna Swiatek visited the Odolany engine service area to record some of the dimensions of the tower and existing support buildings.

A table of those recorded dimensions will be added below the gallery.

We will also have a drone flown around the tower and over the entire engine service area to put things in better perspective as well at get an accurate measurement of the height of the tower.

According to Marian Jureczko, manager of this facility when it was in full operation, there were three ash cranes spaced 30 meters apart – the maximum length of the steam locomotives.  There were also water columns at similar spacing.

We took pictures of the track area with the hope of eventually identifying “what was where”.

About 220 steam locomotives per day used this facility. 120 were local and 100 visiting.  See the steam locomotive repair facility in the page PKP Tour
